Poem of the Day: One


Falling earthbound, unreigned,
freewheeling, aimless but motivated,
these rebellious loyalists plummet
towards their destiny.
Speed to their doom.
Race towards destruction.
But destruction becomes rebirth,
a cold forge bending their identities
into one. One personage, one path,
one purpose.

Cleansing the Earth, these loyal rebels
soak up evil, rolling it across Mother's
breast until the land becomes sea
evil becomes good and they
become One.
