Standing silent,

staring across

the frozen moor,

I hear the clang

of closing doors.

Striking out,

fearing no more,

the endless bloodshed…

settling the score.

Seeking the vast

unbroken shore,

to lose myself

forgetting all.

Crunching snow steps

one by one,

toward a warmer, rising sun.

Leaving heartache,

seeing all as one,

forgiveness propels me,

until this day is done.
