21st Century Life

Whispering winds carrying smoke filled grenades
Lives bouncing left of normal

Trying times trouble Bin’laden, wanting to right his wrongs
People begging gods for deliverance

The black spotted lamb backtracks to the elders’ way
Walking wires of sweet tongued devilry

We walk on a rickety bridge, this life is fragile to behold
Live and love in the here and now

These moments of strife are but a breath of life
Repeated over and over again

Sword is replaced with gun, gun with nuclear bomb
Killing humans, no regard for life
