ACT III - It is to be
An illness takes the body whole, it weakens and destroys it,
What can we do to interfere? Do we have a choice yet?
Is it wrong to seek for solace in arms of coldest metal?
Or are we still too weak to fight this ever-going battle?
Is it wrong to wish for more, to want eternal life?
To nevermore be weak or old, forevermore to thrive.
Soon it is reality, soon we are no more,
Soon there is tranquillity, but rotten is its core.
Humanity has been a word, a choice, a want, a concept,
But nothing has it been at first, nothing at the onset.
We all have made it what it its, we all have shaped its form,
And from the scraps of time and space, we’ve made it our norm.
Yet, we see humanity as more than flesh and bone,
We call it still the quintessence, we call it our home.
And broken from reality, a concept that we’ve lost,
We can find humanity has been the final cost.
So soon there will be nothing left, soon we will move on,
And even though it may seem sad, it’s neither right nor wrong.
We may not like the world we see, we may stand up to fight it,
But if it burns? Who is to say, maybe it’s delighted.
