Will I wallow

in feeling hollow

or hallowed

the way of this current world

carries no flag to unfurl

no heroic fight

no Herculean plight

Just old tired fools

that decay

because they are cruel

greed grief pallor

absolutely bereft of any valor

the warrior’s fearless heart is not like

these fallen leaves that decompose

rather now to take solace

in quiet repose

silently awaiting a time

to restore

the earth sun and moon to their

places of honor

Inspired by Helene Vaillant’s Challenge, “What do you see?”
