Mercy

Cut the trees 
and cut your veins
For your extinction is entwined

These creatures that have been robbed of home
are on this conscience of mine.
Can my existence
be above their creation
Is extinction my legacy?

Will god forgive my sins?
or am I the parasite from above.
Death and destruction are part of me
Can heaven really want the likes of me?

My number will pillage the earth
and only god can stop me.
But in this testimony
the shadows of past will condemn
and the time draws near,
when I too will become a memory.

This life that shared the will of man
will thank god for my demise
for I will repent, 
though the universe is blind
 For I am insignificant

I humbly accept the judgement of god
for I have destroyed the things of life.
My values are the sum of mankind
For greed is programmed into me

Will the dodo forgive from above?
will the creatures that are now silent
forgive me.
Can arrogance belong to the dawn of man?
Does this final supper belong to me?
Has God unleashed the devil in Man?
For I am mankind
And I would not forgive them 
Should this voice ever fall silent?
