THE BATTLE OF SOCIAL MEDIA!
Go forth young soldiers!
For your verbal sparring with strangers
I’ve retired myself from the dizzy whirl of your world
Leaving the noise and the bustle far behind
So, draw your mighty pen swords high!
Enjoy your never-ending race of suppression
The pursuit of aggression your ‘golden quest’
The ‘social’ contest wears me down and shatters my spirit
Like a harsh heavy knock on an old wooden door
So, no more!
I look down on the panoramic battlefield that lays before me
Seeking you out, aching to tell you to set forth and flee
From your moment of glory in a never-ending story
I shield you with the golden sunlight of my love
Protect you with soft, silvery moonlit dreams
For my war is over, you see
I’m not competing in senseless battles anymore
I’m retiring to the majestic hills you see above you
Enjoying the peace and solitude of Mother Nature
And the beauty of simple, warm hearts and gentle souls
For now, it’s your choice
Where you put the strength of your voice…
Yet, when the time comes
As it will come…
When your spirit feels weary
And your quest now seems dreary….
I will welcome you with back with open arms
Back home ….
Back where your heart will be strong
And where you will truly belong…
