As I Kneel: a short poem

Updated on June 3, 2014

Fingertips strung bright red,

an eye so sharp and dialed.

I see my target-



and he is followed.

I track the crimson trail

on adrenaline- my fuel,

to see him laying,

still breathing in a pool.

Clouds of life arise

from his slowly

fading breaths.

In seas of endless sky,

his eyes pierce my soul.

He rests.

      I gave up hunting because of that. A baby deer crossed my path, eyes wide and innocent. I said to myself, too young to shoot. Then I thought, but what of his mother?

      I never hunted again, and became a follower of fast-food burger joints.
