The Future

"It was the fall of the year 2015; and the wars had paused unexpectedly.
All around us it was as if the universe was holding its breath; waiting...

All of life can be broken down into moments of transition
and moments of revelation.  This has the feeling of both!

There is a greater darkness than the one we fight,
it is the darkness of the soul that has lost it's way.

The war we fight is not against powers and principalities;
but against chaos and despair.

Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams.
Against this peril we can never surrender.

The future is all around us...waiting in moments of transition
to be born in moments of revelation.

No one knows the shape of the future, or where it will take us...
We know only, that it is always born in pain.

If we are wise, what is born of that pain
Matures into the promise of a better world

Because we learn that we can no longer afford
the mistakes of the past."
