One Flash Final

by Robert Long   May 10, 2020

Black as a crow bird
Flying in the sky
Blue as the blue jay
That loves to fly on by

Flip-floping in life
With breath forever held
Wandering about escape
Trapped within this cell

Caged like an animal
Forced to fight by day
Thrown back in at night
In the cage is where they stay

They're controlled by emotions
And controlled by the strings
Tugged in each direction
Barely a human being

One foot in front of the other
They're forced to soldier on
The commander doesn't care
Even if their mind is gone

So, it Finally draws near
The end is at hand
Their struggles are gone
And are rid of this land

One left in and ready
Pin pulled back in wait
One flash final
No longer dealing with fate
