Ender




At the end of my strength,
At the end of my life,
I looked up toward the skies,
Blood-red, an atrophied horizon,
Wondering if I may ever again rise.
I see them fighting hopelessly,
My doomed allies,
Burning,
Crying,
In agony,
Like the smoldering ruin of my world.
I can see His endgame,
Annihilation,
Unfettered,
Unfurled.
Today is Judgment Day,
The end of everything we know,
The Ultimate Tribulation,
And I pray for what will never come,
Salvation.

Phoenix



It is in the darkness of our lives,
That there comes a time,
Perhaps more than once,
Yet inexorably,
That we are turned to ash.

All that we know,
And all that we are,
Is torn apart and left afar.

It is in this time,
That we have a choice.

We can either,
Throw the ashes into the bottomless pits of despair,
Ending our story forever.

Or, we can throw them into the infinite horizon,
And arise from them once more,
Majestic, Resplendent, Reborn,
Like the phoenix of myth!
