A solitary fox sitting
A solitary boy walking
A solitary butterfly feeding
Are they happy?
A solitary bomb falling
A solitary woman staring at the painting
What are they thinking?
A solitary sniper staring at a grassy knoll
A solitary baby crying in the night
A solitary moon shining in the sky
Did a man really walk there?
A solitary son waves goodbye
A solitary mother weeps as time goes by
Are they tears of joy?
