Oblivion

Man does not know me, 
For they know not my nature;
Yet deceiving themselves,
To be the judges of truth

Devil knows me,
But makes a mockery of me;
God knows me but He is silent. 

I heard the wind blowing from the south, east, west and the north.
I heard a voice from afar
Of coming days of turmoil and despair
And my future came to a haul.
I came across a long bridge, of life and death. 
As I stood in the middle and heard a thunderous voice
"Haul! I am the gatekeeper. No one crosses this bridge without my consent"
He said: “Look at thy work", as he pointed to the north.

As I looked I saw a huge tower of edifice, 
Jutting out of the ground
And as I looked and gaze as it pierce the heavens
I saw Oblivion.

He stood high above the heavens,
Looking down on the earth,
That He was about to devour. 
Over shadowing the longest plains
And the tallest mountains

I trembled and my body stayed still,
Lifeless and all my hopes were stolen by the size of the Oblivion.
He stretched out his colossus hand,
And it block out the sun
It was night at dawn and the lights in a man’s heart died out.
His legs crushed the mountains and destroyed the valleys;
He provoked men into anger,
And a man’s fury and wrath has undone them.


Trembling in fear, the frightful appearance of the Iron Giant
I fainted, for the Oblivion…looked at me, 
As I slowly fainted and eyes began to close, helpless as I was
The Gatekeeper with a voice of ultimate wrath of a thousand Holy Angles;
Destroyed the Colossus Iron Giant, and I Heard the voice of the Divine,
“Know than, my child that I know thee, 
 For I have always known thee even before thy birth”



Man does not know me, 
For they know not my nature;
Yet deceiving themselves,
To be the judges of truth

Devil knows me,
But makes a mockery of me;
But God knows me and He does not shut the doors of Heaven
Neither to good or evil men
I realize the wind was God, telling me of the things about to befall the world of man. 
The Iron giant was banished into the deep and chained for all eternity. 

Then He said, “The tower is the pride of man,
They challenge the heavens with their knowledge;
The Iron Giant is the destructive nature of man,
And I have bide them in chains to humble them”
