blood painted landscape… by Toni L.A. Cross

blood painted landscape of pain
splashed across the canvas

of ill-acquired gain
tears of motherless babes

splashed across the canvas
of ready and waiting graves
tears of motherless babes
imploring hearts that glint coldly like metal

lives crushed like a flower petal
trampled by the heavy boots of terror
watching the yarn of time spin
as an infinite foot pushes on the treadle

trampled by the heavy boots of terror
families crumble into dust
as an infinite foot pushes on the treadle
and our world gasps and shudders

trampled by the heavy boots of terror
of ill-acquired gain
as an infinite foot pushes on the treadle
blood painted landscape of pain

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
