Hands of Kali

Black suns, red earths
Eastern winds become western rains
Lost in the light, but found in darkness
Only variations of death exist

Each god unsatisfied with their own
Even more with the others
Stubbornness defeats us all
Unwilling to change, but wanting to progress
Contradictions of defiance

"Curse you all," they scream
"Observe and obey!"
Disciples becoming immortals
Immortals becoming suicidal
Suicidals becoming icons

You gave me a world of lies
In return I hand you a world of pain.
Gods trading their own creations
but always receive the same.

Silent with fire, creation of doom
I lack the pity for all of you fools.
I steal all of their creations
Just to hear the gods cry
And the people laugh

Holding them in the palm of my hand
And fire in the other
I set them all ablaze
Laugh now humans,
See what happens to you now

The symphony of gods crying
The melody of people screaming
"But why," I ask,"Why?"
"Why care if all they die?
They challenged your authority."

The gods stared blankly dumbfounded
Thinking as to why.
Why the sorrow towards their subjects
"We thought we could correct them"
How wrong they were
Stubbornness defeats us all
