Divine knowledge concedes, the power that it breeds;
Surrogate wisdom, the truth in its infancy
The root of it all, placed seed by seed;
Vile and invasive, the human paradox.
Sophistication it seeks, yet ignorance it receives;
Dawn of the sinner, an existential cataclysm
Spiritual decline, though the pain it relieves;
The future, while bleak still endures.
Land by land, battling for the ultimate crown;
Catastrophic actions, foreshadow impulsive reactions
Atrocities, causing even the purest saint to frown;
The end while near, not quite here.
While observing it all, condemning the man;
A resemblance of hope, an abysmal sign I await
Eternal silence, dis-sanctifying the plots where it all began;
Until the last candle is extinguished, as lit by man.
