This is War

Here in our village
we are all safe.
One of many villages
within the kingdom of Light.
Our village is within a bubble…
A bubble of protection created
by our mighty King.
Wars of all magnitudes rage outside.
Filled with
darkness,
anger,
death.
The wars outside may dim us
but they never take away our light.
Dark shadows of the enemy race around
trying to find a way in.
So there they sit
watching,
waiting.
They need only one…
One not completely loyal to the kingdom of Light.
The kingdom above all others in which our King rules.
They only need to find one…
One who they can
seduce,
trick,
lie to.
All they had to do
is what they have now accomplished.
They have found their one.
So now the darkness has a grip.
Laughing, it pokes and pries at us Light Bearers.
We are afraid…
We see shadows on walls,
feel its evil presence
and even hear its whispers.
We are afraid…
But why?
Our King promises us protection from the darkness.
He gives us light which,
in turn,
makes us stronger than the dark.
In knowing that light is triumphant
we will fight.
Being confident that our King
makes us stronger than the dark…
we scream “THIS IS WAR!”
This is war and you brought it upon yourselves.
This is war and you will lose.
Give it all you got because
this is war!
We are on a mission
to seek and destroy you.
Watch out…
The light comes for you tonight.
This is war!
You stepped in our camp
and you expect to make it out…
We think not…
This is war!
You tremble at the thought of our King
and you should…
He will have victory
with His army of light!
We are on a mission
to seek and destroy you.
Watch out…
The light comes for you tonight.
This is war.
