The End is Near…
The day is quickly fading, the damp air settles around me
as I look out over the pond. I can hear Earth’s creatures
toiling under the fallen branches and leaves. I must face
another bitter cold night, alone. The power of
disappointment overtakes me; the night will be long and
fearful. My mind strains vainly to remember a time gone,
a time that no longer exist.
I lie in a darkness that grows deeper and menacing, fearing
that I might dream of him that I may have pressed too far in
remembrance, fearing, that which is no longer living. I have
lived life and crossed the infernal sea of violence; I have
endured both his fate and mind. I have walled up a world
around me; here my rules overcome his victory. I must stop
this madness and put to rest that moment in time that lies
In the darkness, I try to remember the truth of my salvation.
I have seen unspeakable things on this road called life. The
words I speak of now are weak, weaker than those spoken
without wisdom in the past. I rise, my steps in the darkness
sound magnanimous in this bare floored room, and my
cowardness is born. Am I infirmed with fear, I am scared of
the beast living in my mind, in the shadows that cover my
eyes. I dwell within hope of heaven and fear of hell.
O Lord, I stand in the light of your wisdom, I praise your
presence. I fear the hurt of hell. I was faithful, his judgments
were poor and he broke all promises. I aided him as long as
he was on this earth; it was I that lived in anguish not he. It
was death that threatened him, he never lived in dread, and
he broke all of your commands. I must always turn away as
my eyes fill with tears; I beg you hasten my life. No more
words, no more displays, I have lived that rigid and frightful
way too long. The end is near.
