Mortal Gods

In silence there is peace
Thereafter life brings all to rest
When all has been played with greater focus
Knowing which advancement would be next

For some the shadows were a, beckon-
Before the darkness came to call
Who left the soulful dreamer lonely
When love, was never there at all

The selfish shall always prevail upon a heartache
Creating words, for country songs
Somewhere within the darkness
Are the prayers of all who fall

Leave them wither in the shadows
Where the outcasts fade away
Taking, with them, love and kindness
What has festered, shall remain

Our mortal gods are great pretenders
How well they hide it from us all
They fear the tears before the silence
When the silence comes to call

Still, who will bring comfort to the gentle
Who will brave the heartfelt, 'rise'
Shall they be lifted from the darkness
Or shunned for social pride

The innocent are freely giving
Perhaps the fear of love is why
Our mortal gods are great pretenders
And our weak, are left to die
