The fog creeps in so silently

It slowly rises from the sea

The air is still with ne’er a breeze

There is no rustle in the trees.

I feel a chill upon my skin

What kind of chaos are we in

I cannot see in front of me

When will our world be trouble free ?

This world is crashing all around

Please tell us if you hear the sound

The thunder roars above our head

We cannot hear what e’er’s been said

There still is time left to escape

We need locate our hero’s cape.

Oh Lord we seek some help down here

The path ahead looms dark and drear

Please send us aid on winged feet

So we may triumph  o’er defeat !

One simple thought occurs to me

That nothing in our lives is free

We pay the price there is no choice

The time is here to raise our voice.

Sound the alarm, call in the guard

It’s sure correct to fence the yard

Prepare ourselves for the onslaught

In this morass we can’t be caught !

At times the pain is so intense

That even tears are no defense

I want to run or fly away

When all my prayers can’t save the day

I do not see how else to live

And need your help to please forgive

Those days that I have thought to die

Before my time to bid goodbye.

I know that there is more to say

Please guide me Lord, show me the way !

I’ve seen the troops in battle dress

They make me proud I must confess

I wish they were but dressing-up

To partake of sweet valour’s  cup

Instead of battling someone’s cause

While fighting in these futile wars.

There is no break nor any end

The fracas leaves no untouched friend

There’s no peace found to fill the air

We’ve only distress everywhere.

The saddest part we must accept

We’ve done our job and are bereft !

A gasp, a sigh, some sign of life

Those battle scars after the strife

A dusty road strewn with debris

A shattered world is left to see

The sadness lingers on it seems

The vanquished have forgot their dreams !

Oh power that rules, attend us please

Our old world is trembling on its knees

The mountains rumble the waters surge

All seem to be begging for a purge,

The woodlands burn with a heat intense

Where is the force of our own defense ?

This world in chaos appears to be

What’s left to us of civility

Open your eyes it is not too late

To challenge the demons at the gate !
