Forbearance

Souls seared and silenced,

Where tears merge with sand,

High pass mountain gales,

Forbearance, hushed and damned.

Stormy trails and trials emerge

Where icy winds and streams

Prevail in piercing whispers,

And raindrop crystal gleams.

Still beside the trail,

In stoic mind and stand,

Dreams of one no longer come

To war with any man.
