From a dream I now awaken
Run outside and close the door
By this fate I am now shaken
Was this ever done before?
The earth was an unsettling fire
Children screaming even more
Men push ahead toward their desires
Women’s hearts brake to the core,
Disasters sprung and filled with madness
Men knew not what to do or say
They grieved in sorrow of their sadness
Losing much hope day by day.
No magic, miracles, or passion
In this place to be revealed
Men paraded in the usual fashion
Hope was far off yet even still.
No place to turn nor to escape
Distressed by this dark illusion
That treacherous forgotten fate
I closed my eyes from this confusion,
I heard a cry of a child weeping
And as I opened up the door
I saw myself quietly sleeping
It is no fate, a dream once more.
