Against the Modern World, Pt II

from by Aloeswood



I sit secluded
Away from the modern world
The silence of nature
The echo of thoughts
Reflected back to me on the ripples of the water

As I gaze at the horizon
From the peaks of these mountains
I think of the beauty
Of desolate winds

They whisper their silent song
They scream of their sorrow
They tell all their stories
Of which I'll never know
