The Earth Rejoiced

mrwallpaper - desert stones

The cultural eyes of the tribe lay dormant until the end was near

each warrior hid their souls, their true selves, until the abomination had ended,

the women kept their secrets hidden, holding them close until the right time.

But once the wars to end all wars had ceased, the people came alive again with joyful hearts,

as they waited for the earth to reclaim her kingdom, it was time they said,

to be alive, and allow their children to be reborn, to live in green meadows,

loving the old ways, and for their people to be a people once more.

All the wars were over now, even the sky called a truce

with the people, and there was freedom

for each one. The earth rejoiced.

    1. Thank you Sharmishtha, this poem is mine, but not the photo. I usually use my own, but this one seemed to fit better. The credit is listed on the bottom of the page. Peace to you!
