Just another day. A sudden rush of heat, the sting of sand on my face
I am airborne, then a splash of warm wetness comes over me
There’s a terrible ringing in my ears, and my mind is in a temporary haze.
My heart is a thumping like a drum, I have come back to my senses. Back from the brink. Again.
I find myself laying flat on the ground, not yet seeing my best
friend is gone. Covered in blood, I think I am dead. It’s not so bad I guess.
Echoes of screams lost in confusion, just another day in my world
Don’t know if I will ever find the bits and pieces I’ve left behind,
All around me, the trees are ablaze, the shake in my hands grows each day
Standing in the shower I can’t wash away the horror of the carnage
I’ve seen today. I’ll close my eyes and try not to dream, I have no
time for it. But still I am unswerving, so tomorrow i’ll awaken and return to the fray. I wish so much to return to the ones I love, but
I’m am also afraid, it’s been so long. Words of encouragement in my head from my home town are cut short by the crackling of lead
cutting the air, my adversary collapses to the ground.
A sickening balance of guilt and relief fills my heart, today’s mission is complete,
It’s so fucking hot. Makes me crazy. We are a close knit family, I cherish my brother’s company because i know
he may not be around tomorrow. I escaped this shit hole once before, but
I didn’t like it as much as I thought, though I don’t know why. I used to cry sometimes,
but my tears have been depleted. I fear the longer I survive, the less I’ll live, caught between a rock and a hard place, could this be
my audition for heaven? Or the highway to hell? One way to find out. Tomorrow I’ll prepare my gear, I’ll clean my weapons, and go
off into the infinite desert, to kill and die again….
I Love you
