Oh for the gift of fire, men have been burnt alive,
Accursed by heaven's guardians, evil's box was their opened,
Releasing the sins of mortality, unto the earth as punishments
 Beware mother's of man, cry for your futures children, 
For Adam has bitten into the forbidden fruit, and 
Innocence garden is lost for all eternity.
Behold the white dove of peace, has change with
The blinding veil of knowledge’s removal, 
It has become the black raven, soaring unto the
Wracking of doom's final hour.
Drink deeply the bitterest of wine, for the vine
Grows no more the sweet grapes, only tainted
Spoils leaving’s are left to drink, quenching
Thy ravenous thirst.
Greed's fever explodes as a wild fire, left
Out of controls reach, redden embers uplift
Towards the skies above.
 Scarring liberation's brethren, taking away
A precious gift of freedom,
As brother's kindred enslaves and shackle
 One another.
Within the shadow's of evils discord, many misshapen 
Silhouettes do form, pledging mankind for all eternity,
Haunting their nights.
Beat do the drums of war, hatred malice enters
The world's venue, and so the weeping woman,
Regrets giving birth to the futures slaughtered.
Behold Pandora’s Box, bleeds red at it's hinges, 
And the lid remains ideally asunder.
Whom knows what remains hidden within it's
Bottomless pit of despair, I dare not guess,
Humanity hold that most dear closest to thee,
For vengeance’s flame shall rain, at the end
Of time upon thee, all for the gift of fire.

    Thanks for dropping by some of my pages, Cherl. I appreciate it. I'm having a go at your poems that all feel like a panting chase in between worlds. They're epic.

    This one mesmerized me. You have captured the dark essence of humanity which still craves being reunited with that light it had abandoned so long ago in the garden.
