Alaska



A heart filled with woe
The tears that she cries,
Wilderness has claimed
Love and passion
Never to return...

Somewhere out there
A dead body lies,
Life lost forever
No one to know
Never to return...

A tormented soul
Thinking the worst,
Praying for hope
No rest in peace
Never to return...

The risk of the wild
Fate of the lost,
Chances taken
Dangers unknown
Welcome to Alaska.

((Note: Alaska has the most unsolved missing person cases of any state.))
