Shadow Lady

The shadow lady
Stood tall at the end of earth

Calm, collected, poised and ready
She stood contemplating governmental birth

Looking on with wisdom
Watching battles turning to wars

She had once tried
But failed to stop them

From the edge
She watched in pain

Her people fighting
Once peacefully reigned

Over night
Everything lost light

Over nothing at all
They ran to their great fall

Wishing to heal
Wounds great and small

They kill each other
Brother against brother

The lady fades to nothing
But a cloud, smoke and dust

Leaving the fools
To do as they must

I hope you are having a good day. Keep smiling!!! =D
