Prophecy War

The prophet spoke one day and all the people did open their eyes
Entering onto a conciseness where their thoughts would soon crystalize
To ending the enduring oppression that had for so long darkened their lives
Soon the kings and queens feared the seer’s followers and began to realize
This could mark the final chapter of their lifelong reign of greed and lies

And the prophet spoke…

To see forever you must close your eyes to all you think you know is real
The answers you seek can only be found by transcending to what you can feel
Keep love in your hearts as the ruling force and make peace your guiding keel
Follow now the path I propose or a dire fate for your race you shall seal
For those who fear me will soon strike me down and my lessons you must all congeal

And the people listened…

Bloodlust was the rule of the day as death and pain ruled the night
In a desperate grab to keep control the oppressors slaughtered all in sight
The people stood their ground but used no force against the oppressive might
As he predicted the prophet was captured and killed before all at first light
But refuge was taken in the prophet’s promise that soon all would be set right

And it came to be…

Slaughtering the people en masse continued throughout both night and day
But with faith, hope and love the people believed the words the prophet did say
Kingdoms fell in ruin and the monarchs turned on each other in cold fray
Then from the ashes of near genocide the people found their their way
Reclaiming their land and remembering the prophet’s words so peace could forever stay
