the coming blood

louder they grow
the drums
i feel them in my blood
carried on wind
they beat
relentless
even the deaf must hear them now

there is too much pain
there is too much fear
the day of battle is drawing near

louder they grow
the cries
i hear them everywhere
lifted in throats
they spread
relentless
even the deaf must hear them now

there is too much pain
there is too much fear
the day of battle is drawing near

louder it grows
the clamor
we can’t ignore it now
echo on echo
it rings relentless
even the dead must hear it now

there is too much pain
there is too much fear
the day of battle is drawing near

    Does sound like the big-one is on the horizon. Fear is defeat. I may shake afterwards, as I have, but not during. Let us pray for peace in the world. Great write, Gina!

    Sadly it is going to happen…A Few hundred years ago they would have cured it in one day…….Why don’t we wake up?……
