Hymns of the Everything

 

Once the Phantasm was the Void,and the Void was the Chasm...

The Chasm was boundless,the Void was limitless,and so endless,the Phantasm

And such a day came the Phantasm gave birth to Light,

The Chasm shook,became full of blight...

 

The Void waned,the Void trembled,and came Darkness...

The Chasm turned into the Abyss,The Void became ageless...

Light created the Cosmos,a garden eternal,

Darkness built the Citadel,the towering infernal...

 

As such the Phantasm continued,

As such stars were spewed

Phantasm no more,Phantasm altogether,

The following days created the Two bounded forever...

 

The Creator,Light's embodiment...

The Tormentor,Darkness' own sentiment...

Two never ending,everlasting opposition,

Each governing a separate dominion...

 

Brothers they were,brothers they fought

Such powers,turned the Void into Naught...

Day and Night,Darkness and Light,together their powers more sublime

And together the two created the Observing Time...

 

Ever observing, Time follows no one...

Ever ending,never ending,Time is here,Time is bygone...

The hundredth day came,the Creator created,

The Tormentor,forged,Time waited...

 

Upon One Hundredth,the Gray World came to be...

It was beautiful,such a sight to see...

Animals,plants,heaven,earth,everything was living,

Upon the next day,the immortal humans came to being...

 

Delighted,the Creator rested,returned to the Cosmos,

With such,the Tormentor started filling the World with woes...

Lust,Gluttony,Greed,Sloth,Wrath,Envy,Pride,the woes manifested,

Some stood,most fell,the Creator lamented...

 

Agony became disappointment,disappointment became anger,

Death was born,the immortal shall now wither...

Out of reach,the Cosmos shall be,the Abyss,for the sinful to see,

 

The  Gray World, with woes strewn,the Gray World asunder...

Humans now Mortals,Mortals now dither...

Death was among them,its scythe shall take what is due,

From the dead shells shall rise the Souls of sentiment and virtue...

 

Souls who wander,Souls who will reap,

Wander they shall,rebirth will slowly creep,

Some wander forever,as such be Wanderers...

They shall carry feelings long gone like boulders...

 

The virtuous and the right,they will be rewarded,

Upon rebirth,to the Creator's children they will be added...

Born from Light,They descend from the Cosmos,

Aided by the Creator,They fight the Shadows...

 

Guide They shall,battle Shadows They will,

Celestials as they are,Creator's hopes They fulfill...

The Creator's Words,their shield and power,

Guidance from Light,the Crossblades they are the wielders...

 

The Evil,the wrong,they will be punished,

Upon rebirth,their purity will be tarnished...

Born from Darkness,They ascend from the Abyss,

Commanded by the Tormentor,the Celestials,They resist...

 

Ensnare They shall,Celestials,They kill,

Shadows as they are,chained,stripped of freewill...

The Tormentor's chains,their weapons of blight,

Pentagony,they wield with might...

 

Shadows and Celestials,forever they fight,

For The Tormentor,The Creator,Darkness and Light...

The Gray World shall be their eternal battleground,

Influencing the Mortals with their knowledge profound...

 

Mortals will choose,Mortals they shall decide,

The path to follow,whether the Dark or the Light they will abide...

Upon Death,themselves imbued into the cycle...

Of eternal wandering or of the eternal struggle...

 

The trial of forever started,Light against Darkness,the World,the mortals shall be tested,

Upon reaching truce,the Judgement,the Apocalypse will ensue,everything will be ended...

 

Before the happening,War,Pestilence,Famine,and Death shall descend,the living shells will be dead...

With the deed done,the souls of the once immortal will be collected...

The World will perish,everything will vanish...

A new World will apear,a new World will replenish...

 

Everything will continue...

The new World will ensue...

Until again a truce is achieved,

The Naught,The Cosmos,The Abyss,Light,Darkness,The Creator,The Tormentor,Time will go on as perceived...
