The Burning

Does it feel like it’s burning in here?

From the molten fields of lava 
We have risen.

From the deepest seas we have found safe harbour,
and we have entered the gardens above.

We have risen from the deep, 
And yet we still seek higher ground.

We drink from the fountain of eternal knowledge;
We sit upon the branched of eternity, 
And we eat the fruit of the Tree.

We seek the light, 
Even as the trees do.

We seek to have light always with us, 
And so we become masters of fire, 
And we handle it to our purposes.

We played with fire, 
And we now seek a cure for our burns.

I smell burning in the hospital.

I see burning on the fertile plains.

I see smoke rising from beyond the distant hills.

I see darkness engulfing the light of the earth.

I see madness and confusion.

I see mass insanity.

These things will surely come to pass before the great and terrible fire at the end of days.

The burning is almost upon us.

Let our souls be clean, and our hearts ready.

That brought Wisdom, sublime.
