How can you sleep when the world is screaming its deafening roar outside?
Churning, twisting its chains and lashing out;
An insomniac’s day dream,
Bearing down like a Juggernaut,
I will not be crippled by indecision,
As i’ve spent a lifetime living thus;
Professional soldiers are trained to move toward the sound of violence (like a hunter to a kill);
While untrained civilians naturally flee,
A rare few will stand their ground,
Determined to make a stand;
For night or day, battle comes when you least expect it;
Some battles are unavoidable;
When neither fight nor flight is a credible option:
For, eventually, all dangers must be faced head on.
