The silent bells of warning

The silent bells of warning

rang and rang

into the hollow night

the lonely red lights flashing

over and over

within the patient chamber

waiting for the strong

and gentle hands of time and light

the loving eyes of god 

The pandemic of fear

We live in the pandemic of fear

my fear your fear

the fear of if the fear of when

the breath of fear

the continent of fear

the air of fear

an ocean of fear

fear in the roots

the cannot escape of fear

the eyes in the mirror of fear
