When purity is often shamed, degraded and disdained,

When truth is banished out of sight and only lies remain, 

When hatred gushes over us like burning acid rain,

When what is right has been reduced to something just not done,

When every hope and dream is devoured by the urge to flee and run,

When humanity has been consumed by lust for the inanimate,

When even divine intervention seems to arrive a tad too late,

Just such a time has been ordained in every book of faith,

Like blinded fools we all just wait and dare the hands of fate,

We sit in our worlds of fragile glass, staring at our doom,

Not caring that a shroud of darkness upon all conscience looms,

Alas we mortals oft forget that what rises crashes down,

No matter how one might deny, to all our sins we are bound.

Our lies, our apathy, our every hateful action is to blame,

For the broken world around us which alone just cries in shame.
