A mother's hand brushes hair from your eyes, tears from your cheek, hurt from your heart.

Forest so quiet
sun rising slowly in peace
feeder going off

stalking toward the blind
shifting the rifle in place
then i see my buck

instincts take over
with a round in the chamber
i squeze the triger

as swiftly as that
i harvested my buck
thank god for my buck

Well, the only critique I can really have is the fact that you forgot the other E in squeeze. I personally would never go hunting, or harm in animal in anyway. But that is just me. So I cannot relate to this persay, but I do however think you did a great job! I loved the ending! And I am sure someone who likes to hunt will enjoy this also! :))
