Three Ways Taken

Some are called
Voices first heard in anger
Replayed between sobs
An end to it all
Whispered by unseen friends
Shouted over glaring red and blue

Of the war within

Some sing out
Every moment of every day
The child unworldly
Seen only in passing
Skipping across mountain peaks
Without a goodbye
