I sit on top of the mountain, looking down on the world.
On my throne of rock and ice I sit, feeling the black inside me.
My heart is under attack, a black sucking vortex has leeched all happiness from within.
Yet the vortex continues to drain. Any wisp of lighter emotion is drained instantly.
So I sit, contemplating the world.
I look down upon the nations, wondering what hope there is for mankind.
I look at the different cultures, races and individuals and I don't see much to hope for.
Children are born innocent, yet are quickly shaped into those before them as they grow.
Full of ignorance, hatred, and fear. We are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Man, woman and child will suffer and once again become fodder for the war machine.
I sit on the mountain. I look down. I feel despair for the innocents.
Despair for the innocent ones who will once again have to endure, or become oil for the war machine.
I sit upon my throne of age old stone and ice, wishing I was a God.
My vengeance would be just, swift and terrible. Not to attain mortal prayer and admiration, but to right the wrongs and to erase the filth from the earth.
