A one-winged butterfly emerges out of nowhere to show the darkest of times.


The One-Winged Butterfly

I look towards the sky and fall into despair.

The one-winged butterfly flies above me,

Which wallows in its beauty.

With its wondering splendor,

It fleets below me,

Catching me within its wing.

We enter a deep night,

Which paints the world black

And burns the seven candles out flat.

The only light comes from the one-winged butterfly,

Which enters eternal darkness.

Silhouette faces emerge out of the shadows to beckon with a smile

“Come here, to the deep forest of Hell.”

The butterfly sways around their remark.

It floats suddenly near the rumbling sea.

It then dips its one wing into the sea of sin.

And I wonder if the wing will become black with sin?

The wing emerges from the black sea,

To boast off its newly golden color of its wing.

The wing brings light back into the world.

Bringing forth the golden light of hope.

The seven trumpets that seep through the darkness,

Ring throughout the world,

Giving birth anew.

Ahead of us are seven pillars

That tremble beneath the one winged butterfly.

They crumble to the ground creating a new land.

The Golden Land opens its way to a crimson life.

The butterfly then sends me to my demise,

Where it then speaks in a solemnly soft voice.

“Are you without sin?

Are you with Love?

Are you without lies?

Are you with ME?”

“Your final judgment has been given.

Now accept your fate,

and win this Golden Land in the next game.”

In my last breath, I breathe in the golden air.

In my last touch, I feel the golden wing.

In my last sight, I see the one-winged butterfly flying to the Golden Land.

I know now that the game will soon begin again.
