Favorite Quote:
"It's not stalking, maybe productive dynamic following."

All Hope destroyed,
"Who will save us?"
Once abandoned bt God,
"Who will save us?"
Yet we destroy all we pretend to cherish
As the Grim Sage rises, will we fall?
"Thanatos! Thanatos!"
His followers will call,
Already forsaken by our Parent.
"Thanatos! Thanatos! Please save us all!"
The people will plead.
A smile showing all teeth,
Slender fingers, worn with what it holds;
Trying to slow down time with will alone
Wanting to make more of what he holds.
"We praise! We love!"
They'll shout out
Loosing all fate, becoming fully damned.
And yet we destroy all we pretend to cherish.
He wishes to please,
He gathers the lost whom want to live;
Gambling the kiss of painful death
Life being the reward.
"We desire to destroy your enemy!"
Thanatos! Thanatos!

The author's comments:
This poem came about 2 years ago, when I bought a calander, seeing a picture of Death leading skeletons through hardships. I was immediately inspired and wrote this. It is sybolic of how we sway so easily, no loyalty needed for any reason anymore, including our beliefs, and even the way politics sway with their lies to tempt us with empty promises, and how we, as people, follow blindly.
