Young Hermit’s Secret

I hide in fog and water, I cross the fire and run through the sky,
The only survivor in the descendants of ninja is me,

My father and brother achieved the missions and died in cruel war,
I was a faithful soldier trained strictly from childhood,

However, I am a quiet hermit and ecological farmer in a mountain now,
I knew with deep sorrow the emptiness of repeating fight for murder,

Surely, father will call me a coward,
Sorry, but I feel the life is holier than honor,

My dear friends are pretty squirrels in the forest,
They give lovely fresh acorns to me in fine morning,

I talk with animals and love wildflowers singing cheerily,
All lives are full of joy, I am unified with Mother Nature,

This peaceful place is a secret not to be found by assassins,
And it is a secret whether I am a man or a woman,

Today, I heard the violent noise of war far away again,
My eyes like a clairvoyant cat see everything in autumn moonlight,
If the world is wrong, I go my way alone.

    Love your vision. Sorry to say that when two forces go to war, the one that suffers is usually the one not willing to take part. For some not-so-peculiar reason, war affects the peaceful ones more.

    Just one word – mesmerizing! :O
    Here is one of my writing: http://xaviersbooks.wordpress.com/2013/09/21/hunger/
    I usually write poems in a rhythm (AB-AB/ABA-ABA/etc.) and my personal favorite is ab-ab (used in my poem).
    But the topics that I cover are nothing in front of yours. Yours are completely new and genuine, and I don’t think I’d be able to write on them. I write poems on very general topics (hunger, rain, disappointment, etc.).
    So kudos to you! 😀
