The New Road

In the heat of battle won,
In the lull before the void,
At a time the world stands still,
A victory yet enjoyed.

When a soul stands lost, forlorn,
In mists of shadow lands,
With forearm limp and tired,
Sword bloodied in the hand.

You join in raging thunder,
Take silence by the hand
And change all those around you
By your presence and your stand.

You know what you must do,
You hear the voices tell,
You feel the swirl around,
As you await the mighty swell.

As battles are but brief,
For all the strength entailed,
And life keeps moving forward
Restoration thinly veiled.

So you wait in earth bound silence
For all to come to right
As the door stands bright before you
Then opens to the light.

You ride the wave that follows,
Full balanced in the night
And carry what you need
With all your strength and might.

The troubles of this life,
The needless details man creates,
Will fall away in brightness
As the energy awakes

And moves the planet forward
With those who wish to share,
Returning to a path long tread
The new road now appears.
