~America is Me~

"Prologue"

Contrary to disbelief, the essentials of life have been forgotten, where do we go from here?

~Beyond the realm of man~

We live on the realm between heaven and hell, confined between the darkness and light.

Death!
is a bridge to
the other side, engulfed in this spiritual fight.

Religion!
is a concept to vast
to truly be explained, when you can open a textbook and give it a name.

True faith!
the un-penetrable
belief in unseen wisdom, a power to great for mortal man to defame.

Humanity!
Dug their own graves,
long before dinosaurs and caves, long before Noah built his Ark, long before the ten commandments were carved into solid rock, long before the thorns in the garden could even sprout, humanity had already been kicked out.

The dust of histories past whisper our names beneath the gravel of ignorance and shame, the bones of our ancestors cry out in pain, on this lonely, forgotten, desolate plain.

Their blood stained tears pervade time and space, at the horror of this unflinching escapade. Freedom of speech, what a wonderful impact on a society already out of whack,

the world, evolving into self induced coma, the dominoes of hysteria have been stack, what more do we need to add to the equation, death and destruction are like a close relation.

Don't fear the doomsday bomb, guns in the streets, school age children baring arms, foreign countries on the brink of war pressing against America's door, who could ask for anything more?

The barrel of destruction is overflowing, the walls are caving in, get your house in order before it's too late, before humanity becomes victims of their own dying fate..
