terror slithers

stifling our silent dreams
of future lives in peaceful lands
the enemy thrives on our screams
our ignorance he understands

slipping through the opaque air
the fog enveloping the world
finding nothing hidden there
nothing inside emptiness lies curled

are we missing what it means
or has the sense of it subsided?

quiet reasoned discourse leans
against the end of time, expired

And our persistence,
pushes back.

life is fighting
never stopping
until dying
ends the quest

while the day
begins in sunshine
and the nighttime
brings us rest

still the struggle
makes me wonder
if our methods
are the best

Well yes,
you have to wonder.
