Radiation Will Be The Judge To Which You Will Testify

A Rose Within A Catatonic Wasteland

These once-green fields have been burnt to the soil
Helpless creatures that once lived within its ancestral warmth have vanished
just like the humanity of those who scorched it all
Depraved and ardent converts wade through the carbon-engulfed waste, hoping, to find one singular answer to their dire plight
infecting them all
Working hands toil in the sewage, still
ignorant of one true desire for peace
one faithful discovery of the obvious
submitting to grandiose plans of madmen
Still they lead a search, for some semblance of favor
Still, trolling the acrid earth for a sign of life
While one cannot fathom how an insignificant serf with a penchant for logic,
and a dedication to reservation, could discover the secret so many have been searching
like the water droplets on Mars that they said didn’t exist
How could one come upon such a mountain of platinum and precious metal
standing vacant in a field of carnage and deceit
Standing obvious and glaring at the prospect of hope,
tall above the foregone conclusions of the past,
and all those who continue to stifle its verity
Someone with a loyalty so dense and dedicated,
it could only be rivaled by the orbit of planets,
promising to rise and fall with the tides
reaching into the heavens when the pull is with power
and retreating again when its opposite returns
allowing the ancestral pattern to continue
keeping true, the only hope left for humanity
an unrivaled consecration for the one thing left sacred in the universe of nothing
utilizing loving force, its only remaining commandment
