THE SONS OF MEN

THE SONS OF MEN

The sons of men
Once long ago
Ruled over the
Galaxies, stars
And planets

And then
After just a
Few angry words

War

Death

Destruction

The Dark

Their descendents
Left what remained
Behind them and
Took their children away
With them and taught
Them about peace
Taught them about
Love and taught them
To just be happy
And to take care of just
The few important things
They had left

And when they
Found a small
And lonely place
Among the stars
They called her

Mother

But eventually
They all forgot
Who they were
And forgot what truly
Mattered

And then again
After just a
Few angry words

War

Death

Destruction &

The Dark

Returned

The cycle
Repeating
Over & over
Again

Throughout time
Throughout centuries
Throughout millennia

Until
One day
All the sons
Of men
Were dead

And above
Them all the stars
The planets
And the galaxies

Were gone
