The Wait

Staring down on earth from my throne of omnipotence observing humanity declare dominion over all creatures across the land, sea and air.

Each of them worshipping me peacefully whilst, at the same time, decrying those who dare to have a different prayer for me.

Dreams and hopes destroyed by greed and power.

A love not strong enough to overcome hate and mistrust.

I remember the beginning before the invention of time when my hopes were wild and free.

They chose to worship me with devilish fervour but now I await their final conflict as I prepare the earth for their successor.
