The hunter

The previous day has just ended but you have just begun

For the battle to win the day is half as easy as the battle at dark

You topped the ridge, disregarded fear, for you have left your mark

But night sneaks up on you, captures you, and tells you your only way out is to run

But you will not run, for daylight brings new adventures

As the light shines in, you once again are greeted by the obstacle

The early morning climb leaves you exhausted as you crest the mountain standing tall

The sound of a distant bugle leads the way to wherever you dare to venture

The long days that have prepared you to run

For one second there is chaos and the next, stillness

For the woods have given up its treasure and the herd is one less

Silence is upon the mountains as a new challenge has begun
