before our eyes

We stopped and listened for
peace but
couldn't hear it
We stopped and looked for
beauty but
couldn't see it
We waited for
the children
they grew old
before our
We walked for
miles and
still we
couldn't find
a thing
We drove through
valleys and
on long and
pleased us.
We went out
searching in
the dark for
a strawberry moon..
There was none
as if we merged
with a force larger and
more lethal than
we sensed, so
we dropped a bag of
sand and
proceeded down
that long
country road.
