At the end of all that exists,
At the end of time as we know it,
At the end of reason, logic, and sense,
There is a place, a void, of endless calm.
When you wake up to find the world
Burning in the fires of man's destruction,
Fueled by greed, jealousy, and pride,
You can find me in the void.
Someday, if you find yourself all alone,
Abandoned by family you thought you loved,
Betrayed by friends you thought would be with you for life,
Left without a single shred of proof that love is real,
Come seek out love in the void with me.
If you cast your eyes up in search of answers,
Only to see the sky has turned red,
That oceans have been drained,
And the world has stopped spinning,
You'll find release with me in the void.
Should you lose all hopes for the bright future we were promised,
Should your faith in human's capacity for good cease to exist,
Should you taste the bitter dust of your your crushed dreams in your sleep,
Accept the embrace of the void.
Until then, fight on, beautiful soul.
Fight because no one else will fight for you.
Fight fiercely when you have nothing left to lose.
Fight because doing nothing never works.
The void will welcome you as it will, someday, welcome all.
And when it does, when you finally lay down your proverbial sword
And let all breath leave your body,
I will find you, hug you, and you will smile like you haven't in years.
