A Reason for the End

You want it swift

blindsided

not seeing

for it to be sure

and not of your own making.


what care have you for the earth

who would suffer as well

look beneath and about

the work of His hands

what would scorch you

destroys the others


no, see them get stronger

see them master you

watch a world going wild

until you see that those you valued not

fear you no more

See a world gone mad

mad as men see madness

but vengeance and justice

are better served cold.


Watch the soil

how you toil

how you spin

it gives you enough not to starve

no more

only so you can watch desolation

watch how men

not refined

not perfected

who buck the oil press

prove they're no better

then those they spurned and misused.


no preservation

no conservation can save

when those who are worn

those who are stepped on

those groves who are used

that stone which is witness

that fire which is made in honor

of those who seek not honor

but to serve their maker


when they testify

when they shriek, grumble, moan, crackle

the names of those who bow

and not to their master

those who toil

but not for what matters

those who live

flying the finger at their Father.

Awesome poem- right on the scene! In the name of seeking a purpose of life, we often end up in self destruction or that of others.

Great title!

And we keep forgetting that destruction of others means our own in the end.

true, destruction is a very unwieldy tool. It seldom is worth the effort unless there is a big enough populous concentrated in one area, thoroughly homogenized to use it. Otherwise, stressing people in general until they see the error of their ways is far more effective.
