one life the pinnacle of all
a vision of perfection
by way of noble bloodlined birth
whispers of self-justification
provide constant assurance of authority
continuance with burnt offering
sacrifice to the altar of bloodlust - culture
the essence of innocence flawed by corruption
an angel in thine own eyes
a devil in thine own right
a bloodfed atrocity hailed as the paradigm of civility

which is the savage beast?
is it instinct? death as a necessity of survival?
rather a simple act of domination
murderous pride in development as
beauty dies

tears soak the tainted soil
cried to germinate a hope for the growth
of compassion
violence becoming a slave for the effects of...violence
how does it end?
does our lofty vision fade into the earth?

a fall from grace,
for our seeming seraphic stature?
or do we rebuild?
a new foundation for the future

our choice fast approaches
acceleration to a possible apocalyptic end
with hope of emergence of humanistic
inner beauty
i prepare for the assured destiny of culture
