There Will Be Blood

A thousand years ago My children’s children bore life Indeed, silence they have brought But silence they have slain And they swam oceans and seas Journeyed through the sands Stopped by the shadows And lit no light I watched my children’s children Bore another life And I prayed to the suns and moons As the sky dances to its tunes My prayers begun as I begged “Do not undo time, do not slay my sons My daughters will bear children You shall soon see light” And my prayers were heard But a price I must pay “You will watch your children Bathe on your own blood” And a thousand years later My children stopped at none I watched them part ways I watched them day and night They drenched to each other’s blood They made love to one another’s wife Raising soldiers from sons Bathing daughters to be brides But a parent could only bare such Questioning one’s own love Seeking answers never to be found Sleepless nights to endless thoughts And I stood between two paths Calling from the sands of time Summoning all ashes and bones Rise, my sleeping warriors of just

    I was initially confused with your first two lines, but once I imagined it from God's perspective, things began to click. Really sad to see humanity dwindling into this state of chaos and rebellion ... like any parent, how it grieves at the heart. Well penned, Sarah. "bath on your own blood" < I think you meant to say "bathe", but other than that though, good piece.

    Sounds ominous. Some prose issues, but it has an epic feel to it
