What once was

I saw what once was.
I’ve seen what now is.

Covered in verdant, with azure entwined beneath
Coated with crimson, the gray stealing fragile dreams

The pristine, unborn blossoms caressed the lonely breeze.
The ash cascaded below, embracing the flames with ease.

The frost stricken air sang angelic lullabies,
The desolating heat rang dirges throughout twilight,

and afternoon clouds gave way to sanctified light.
while deep, unholy shadows came with dark delight.

The winds were colored with nostalgic memories.
The winds were colored with nostalgic memories,

The air flowed through waters, glistening in morality.
though marred by sulfur from a corrupted reality.

They once repeated that simple, loving ballad,
They now beg desperately for homes they once had,

in a beautiful field, surrounded by white.
in a bloodstained field, shrouded by night,

They said their prayers, their lovely ignorance,
with lingering lachrymose do they remove their blissfulness.

They smiled at each other, with warmth in their hearts.
They cried through the oceans, their tears so far apart.

They said they’d never leave, that they’d stay for a while.
They kept wandering blindly, burdened by hate’s beguile.

They reach for each other, unable to understand,
They reach for each other, unable to understand,

The depths of their emotions, of their peace and love.
The cruelty of their sins, of violence and lust.

I long for the days when they were once children.
I only wanted those children to listen.

Though we both know that can never be,

Since devastation now ravages gracelessly.
