Minor Damage

I sat staring into the void
emptying my mind of all thoughts
what’s power
does it greed
my strong desire for more wealth
more power
more than desire
more than I need
more than I wished
more than I got
more than I had
I conceded after an endless struggle
nothing would satisfy me greed for power
I had another helping of desire out of pure greed
I was more sinned against than sinning
(held a power isn’t sin?)
would it get me close to heaven’s door?
power – to have it is to be close to heaven – or is it?
Or it’s just a loss
do lots of power will kill me
I wanted to get close to the heaven
so I got power
more greed
political control
seized an area what I desired
regime has been in power for years and years
I was happy that I’m having all
whether it called as sin or greed
It was within my power
to do anything
I was doing everything in my power to help me
to satisfy my greed and power

Power – to have it is to be close to heaven – or is it?
I heard a voice in the silence
does that from my heart?
or soul?

An inner voice told me that what I was doing was wrong
I looked and saw
it’s a large empty space
below heart was nothing but a black void
the sky was void of stars
I’m lost in a void without future or past
the situation was beyond my control
the immediate future was clear, but it’s hard to tell what lies beyond
I was seeing in the dark
beyond the stars
my success was far beyond what I thought
I stood there, paralysed with fear
I have failed to reverse the gradual
past to future
future to past
I get lost in the present
storm calm neon skies
I’m walking around an area without any definite aim
without any direction
I was seized by a sudden pang of conscience
gaze roamed over the situation
haunting the conscience of forgotten existence
civilization’s mistake
all we living in this world
and different societies
can only consider that
environmental damage threatens the whole of civilization
future offers a new horizon
a comfortable way of life
I have a terrible conscience about it
I eke out a precarious existence
I saw, peace struggled from it’s grip
but at last takes it’s grip on the land
for the moment time stood still
wars bygone age
resurrect mankind sacrificed to power
mistake ruined chances of getting the change
the time had been left to go to ruin
I was ruined by the desires
from ruins to the birth of new reality?
Would I try to rising from the ashes of past destruction?
Does civilization new existence?
I was determined to build a new life out of the ruins of my resolution
mankind might be succeeded in resurrecting their power
Power – to have it is to be close to heaven – or is it?
or power just ruined life?
resurrect mankind sacrifice to power?
