When the World Burns

The moment the world burns:

When the sun explodes

In shards of crystal fire,

When the oceans boil

And the lands split into gaping holes,

When the volcanoes awaken

And the hell below is revealed,

When magma burst forth

And scorches your feet

When you cry out to your God

And pray for respite

When you cry and scream

And your faith is shattered

When you see yourself as deserted

And you curse your Maker's name

I will watch and laugh

As I am burnt in an eternal flame

I have no God to feel betrayed by

I have no torturous morals to break

And I will have no regrets:

I will have sinned

I will have inspired

I will have persevered

And I will have died.

But I will have lived first.
