The fall, ever encroaching,
Whispers sharply on the winds.
Impending, leaden, ever approaching -
An innate awareness divinely given;
Spirit breath stirs in the bodies of those -
Visionaries, intellectuals, the knowing.
Hold steady, get ready, and never quit hoping.
The masses, largely unfeeling,
Discern slowly in their minds.
Unveiling, parlous, largely appealing -
A darker prophetic foreboding defined;
An unconscious force.
Evil deeds thrive in the blackest of times -
Sickening, controversial, and trying.
Hold steady, stay ready, the virtuous will fight.
The light, bravely shining,
Flickers steadfast in the sky.
Unearthly, awesome, bravely defying -
And beings transcendent loudly decry;
No more, no more, no more!
Mortals will see a new blossom of life -
Promising, supercelestial, the divine.
Hold steady, you're ready, the worthy never die.
Then peace, finally reaching,
After fighting for what's right.
Wondrous, fulfilled, finally teaching -
A scripture already written, but largely denied.
