Militant drums beat steady and coarse.

Families take shelter.

Men in uniform with sword, gun, horse,

are all blown helter-skelter.

Though flames grow, and sky fills with lightning,

these terrors are not the real kind;

for nothing is more frightening

than the war within one’s mind.

Bright Light

Golden light

fall from the night

sky, and ignite

Rumbles of thunder

Angels held under

the clouds, which snore in slumber

Breaking free

Bolt towards me

Light up the room searingly

Whisper within

the electric waves

Are You here to kill, or save?
