Like A Falling Star
The sunset began before my eyes,
Angels sinking their heads in soulful cries.
The soldier's thumping footfalls fade away
The oldman now drags his atrophied feet about all day.
The mud of life soon taints

Dead and hopeless like the trees in my forest
Tall with large trunks and branches yet without a fruit
Without a fruit or flower of which i should be proud.
In my most weary bones, blood whirl
