A Divine Wind

A Divine Wind

A divine wind blew the young man to oblivion

In pursuit of a dream,

A promise,

An ideal;

A sense of nationalism,

To protect the homeland.

A divine mission blew the young man to oblivion

In pursuit of a dogma,

A promise,

An archaic text,

A wish for eternal life,

A paradise with sex on tap.

A mission, a wind, a promise

Based on fear of oblivion,

As desperate young men dream

And sacrifice themselves

For ideals,

For desire,

For fake promises

And impossible dreams.

Opher – 29.9.2019
