Only a gentle breeze rustles the stillness of the moment,
A flock of birds soar quietly overhead
Creating sharp shadows
Where the brilliant sun cannot pierce.
The figure sits
With a small smile.
As the trees sway in the breeze
As the flowers bloom
Perfuming the air.
Far across the world
Where the sun does not shine
And the birds do not sing.
Where hate rules
And destruction follows
Creating darkness and despair.
Long after the explosions die down
The screams of pain
And the cries of the grieving can be heard,
In the everlasting night.
