THE FLAMES OF TIME. ©

by Vincent

Age Group: Adult



WE HOLD TO NOTHING.

NOT OUR CULTURES.

NOT OUR LOVES.

NOT OUR FAMILIES.

NOT EVEN OUR OWN LIVES.

WE DESPAIR AT THE SLIGHTEST OF TEMPESTS.

WE MOURN WHEN WE SHOULD REJOICE.

WE DEMAND, INSTEAD OF ASKING.

WE TAKE, WITHOUT MERCY.

WE ARE FULL OF AVARICE.

WE HATE WITHOUT THINKING.

WE COUPLE, WITHOUT LOVE.

WE SHOW COMPASSION, AS WE SHOVE A KNIFE IN THE BACKS OF OUR BROTHERS.

WE WAR UPON EACH OTHER, LIKE A PACK OF JACKALS AT A CARCASS.

CARRION IS OUR FOOD, NOT THE RICHES THIS WORLD OFFERS.

WE FEAST UPON THE MISERY OF OTHERS.

WE DIE, WHEN WE SHOULD LIVE.

I SHALL NOT PARTAKE OF SUCH THINGS.

I ENDEAVOUR TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND JUST, AND ACCEPT THE SNEERING THAT THE MASSES PRODUCE IN MY WAKE.

I ACCEPT THEIR REVULSION OF ME, WHEN I ACT AS A SAMARITAIN.

I ACCEPT THEIR JEERS, WHEN I SHOW CONCERN.

I ACCEPT THEIR JUDGEMENT OF ME, EVEN THOUGH I DISMISS IT, AND PAY NO HEED TO THEM.

I ACCEPT THEIR HATRED OF ME, THOUGH I LOVE WITHOUT THOUGHT OR CARE.

I SHALL LIVE, WITHOUT THESE WEIGHTS SHACKLING ME TO DOOM.
I SHALL ENDEAVOUR TO HELP, WHEN THE WORLD TURNS ITS BACK UPON THOSE THAT NEED ASSISTANCE.

I CONTINUE MY VIGILANCE.

SHE IS OUT THERE.

I SHALL KEEP ON SEARCHING FOR MY COMPANION.

THROUGH THE FLAMES OF TIME.
