I woke this morn’ with a deep sorrow, in the marrow of my very bones.
For I saw it, clearly, precisely, unbelievably vivid in the harshness, presented to me.
It was a vision, not a dream. It was the future, not a fantastical story.
It was what is to come and what shall be.
I am unsure why I was given this gift of vision. Gift? Maybe not.
Maybe it was just another curse, to pile upon those, I already have.
Whatever the reason behind it, only the universe knows.
I hope it was not the last message, before what I saw, becomes real.
I saw the world aflame. I saw the air filled with flame, ashes, and the screams of the dying.
I saw our children dying in droves. Their little forms writhing in pain, as fire engulfed them.
I watched the remaining birds, fall from the sky and the dogs drowning, on their own vomit.
I saw the end of humanity.
In a very deep way I was saddened.
Down to the very core of my being.
My heart barely beat. Each beat seemingly more intense and more painful than the last.
I too was dying. I was dying from the inside out.
When I awoke this morn’ I thought it was just another nightmare.
Then I turned on the TV and reality sunk in.
Anyone could easily see what I have seen.
Most just choose to believe it is a nightmare.
The lucid nightmares of today WILL become the reality of tomorrow.
Unless we as species, accept and attempt to change, all that we have destroyed.
I do not see that happening. I see the world spinning backwards.
With that in mind, I wish to say farewell to humanity.
You know your destruction is upon you and you do all you can to help it along.
I am saddened, that I can do nothing to change us, for we must want to change first.
