Darkness swallows up the sky,
Light extinguished, life will die.
A blank canvas of nothingness.
The totality of eternity is a mess.
A burst of light breaks the scene.
Life reforms in the in between.
Blooming in a deadly drought.
Idol hands are sowing doubt.
Years of suffrage ignite,
Counting down the final fight.
Who will stand firm and tall?
And whom will be the one to fall?
