The Waters Vast
A rolling roar yet a hushing still
A vast of green creased in white
A pool of life stuffed with deaths
A chamber of secrets
New Year's Eve Midnight
There is excitement in the air
Hearts are bubbling with joy and light
We feel the Death that is near
And we sit in wait wit smiles wide and bright.
If I Was Me
If I was me...
My heart would be beat more slowly
My family would breathe more peacefully
My tears would gradually grow stale
Once again, the dreary dirges have begun an upward journey.
The sunny day did not end in a moonlit night,
The flute is keening for the latest victim,
Another soul has crossed over.
Who Am I?
I am the boy who was born
A day before the hero died
Born Heart of the Lion
Power and strength abounding
When the aliens visit our lands
We will welcome them with open hands
We will not greet them on bended knee
Yet we will attend to their every need
