Poetry – Day 18

Thwarted

In my ears sounds of gun battle

Waiting for the hero to emerge victorious

In my ears sounds of deception

It never ceases to amaze me how many times hope is the ultimate nemesis

Hope that people will do the right thing

Hope that people think the same as you

The hero is shocked that the powers that be are the real evildoers

Yet I keep watching

It’s the movies that hold my attention

It’s the story line that keeps me guessing

In this moment it’s all I want to think about

Who did it, when, where, and why

This is mission if I choose to accept it

I’ve got the map to my next checkpoint

Will I make it?
