Still

Still
Still are we
Frozen in a moment
Frozen in a second of time
Waiting

Still
Still we are
Still we are in the silence
The silence of a second
Waiting

Still
Still we are
Motionless in a heartbeat
An empty rhythm of memories
Waiting to be forgotten.

Still
Still we are
As those who lie before us
Unmoving on the frozen ground
Waiting forever.

Still
Still we are
Silent as the prayer we mutter
Under an unmoving and bloodless sky
Waiting for death in the open.

Still
Still we are
Hands upon rifles gripping,
Lips dry, silent, unmoving
Anticipating the whistle.
