Obscure vs. Graceful

Damn the world and all its wonders
Burn everything that stands
Destroying the barricades
Let my evilness through
Recognize the purity of death

Glorify all that is living
Watch the beauty of the earth
Rebirth of life shining
The aging enlightenment
From wonders that push through

Kill everything that moves
Having it beg for mercy
Because I’m absolute
Worship this idol
Of selfish greed

Let life progress
Smile at every waking endeavor
Allowing the passionate togetherness
Instilling a unified knowing
Of one’s spirited heart

  1. i love, “recognize the purity of death”… how true is that! It is not final really but, a rebirth. An awakening to all things new. We should not mourn the dead but rejoice in their freedom. Nice poignant pen!

  10. The contrast is gripping… Let the light triumph over dark and have the last say!

  11. Whoa. The complete duality of this is stark even down to your use of the typeface. What can be read into the mindset that the negatives are anything but obscure, as it nearly overshadows the graceful? Maybe it’s because I’m in a good mood, but it was a graceful line that caught my eye first “Smile at every waking endeavor”. I think there’s a reason I saw that before everything else and I’m going to go with it.

  12. Cool.
    Love the duality of the piece.
    Nice write!

  13. Gives a hint of obscurity, but clever!
