All of a Sudden

all of a sudden
her tongue's tied tight with stuck tears
life's right in her face

past decisions loaded
not locked, but she's a stray
bullet off target

always in the wrong
place at the right time waiting
for just the moment

to spring at a feast
like a Venus fly trap grabs
for its existence

internal bleeding
for a country and people
a daily headline

align yourself fine
in fields of your own planting
chanting for new days

for peace
