dawn of life or dusk of death

dawn of life or dusk of death?
as the sun starts to rise it's stealing my breath
it captures my soul on that endless horizon
like an eagle uncaged up to heaven i'm flying
angels bid me well as demons stir the sand
starting whirlwinds out of them all get out of hand
screaming in the silence because silence owns what's said
is this the dawn of life or just the dusk of death?

day after day and night after and die both equally...but then it gets uptight
that's when we get diseased with our paranoid pollution...looking for an answer in those sad and sick solutions
is this wrong or is this right?
questions cut like a knife and the world bleeds all its dread
is this the dawn of life or just the dusk of death?

    Very descriptive and expressive write..I am glad that I chose this one to read this afternoon..Thanks of the comments on my work about the grapes...I was going to write a poem about those wild grapes but I wanted to use that word__bullesses__I have been told that it comes from the fact that they shoot out in ones mouth like a bullet...Sara
