And lo, I stood above the clouds, breathless
Flying birds beneath me swirled, restless
To travel beyond my elevated sight
Everything for once seemed right
Revolving around the planet I saw it all
Now below there was a war
Only hatred flowed with ignorance at its core.
Older than myself no creature could end it
Not even the gods of heaven could mend it.
Doubt filled me and I sank lower
Regretting my perceptions of power
Even the winner would find this war saddening
After losing so many, it could be naught but maddening.
Many would perish, as war was hungry for more than pie.
Still, we can stop it, you and I. Twas just a prophecy, perhaps a trick of mine inner eye.
