An ethereal conscription

Those barren landscapes

laid waste –

inhabitants speaking in

hollow inflections.

 

Jilted egos orbiting –

a dead star.

 

Going through the motions

fortified by the potion –

a notion of self worth.

 

Pushing back against

those vicious lies –

casting aside

misplaced allegiances –

to take on

mandates that

make the Earth shake.

 

Clouds on horizon

give testament –

cowardice in flight

of the chosen

turning tail to

run like Jonah.

 

Hiding from

the omnipotence of purpose –

guilty of placing

faith and allegiance

in the wrong places.

 

Swallowed whole –

fermenting in the

belly of that

which they could not

elude.

 

Penance in the void

redemption gifted

priorities shifted

knees on ground

beholding the power

of the weight

lifted.
