I finally admited God was God
-C.S Lewis
Humans are amphibous. Our spirit makes us eternal while the animal binds us to time.
-C.S Lewis

Darkness deep, darkness damp
Smother the light of a living lamp

Set forth upon this lonesome earth
A beast known to no human’s hearth

A living fire that sheds no light
A fire that blinds all known sight
Generals of right stand against

But quickly they be silenced
The holy hearted hold the flame
This battle little more than a game

A witch’s gaze knows the course
And soon horse eats horse
Innocents hide in fear this night

Knowing all too well the coming fight
To hear the beasts cry they hope
Ended swiftly by the hangman’s rope

The mighty flame consumes all
Leading to its own deadly fall

Yes, more english homework, but this one felt good to write, my inspiration was a little bit of Macbeth and some teenage skepticism thrown in.
