In the Mountains

A beautiful world
locked behind a door of hate.
You ignored the signs,
but some knew the upcoming fate.

“Screw off!” was yelled.
A fight broke out,
some kind of way to rebel.

We are all family.
It’s a lost day when we are run by money.
An imitation admiral led the crowd,
now there was nothing left that was funny.

army
shots
casualties
victims
war heroes
death

These last few years my friends and I stayed in
the mountains praying, delaying, and saying.

No one’s right; the future does not look bright.
But as long as we worship God, there will always be a light.

I wrote this when I was 16, that’s about the mid 90’s. I have several like this from that time frame that feel eerily appropriate in these times. I had a religious/spiritual tone to them as well.
