From the Mouths of Sadists

As we fall back through black holes and irises scorned

Heaven crumbles among us

Was this His plan?

Were we forsaken?

Left to wither out like embers from the mouths of sadists

We degrade ourselves

Mutilate one another

Disembowel our children for meanings beyond our own intellect

A dip into the fractured human psyche reveals revelations

Crack open one from humanities kind and inhale the pneuma

Within our own heads we can reach farther beyond space

Why embark outside our own universe searching for distant planets

Beyond the unknown is where we come from

Beyond the unknown is where our answers are

And it is beyond the unknown

We will never be

So we snuff each other

And prostrate for our creator to lead us

Beyond that unknown towards distant planets

Answering our revelations
