Endless Path (Prequel)
What happened to this,
the purgatory we created?
Once so vibrant and alive,
Now decaying in ruins.
Much like our souls,
covered in these scars,
from the war of yesterday.
I thought this was the balance,
our own modest perfection.
Again, in these flames,
I have been well deceived.
I now attempt to rebuild,
what remains in the ruble.
Self sacrifice takes its toll,
now we are to be set free.
To find a new home,
in the arms of our hopes.
Such a bittersweet goodbye,
maybe one day, reunited.
Until then, I must bid farewell,
to this, all I have ever known.
Our journey from here, unsure.
I know I must let you slip away,
To find your place in the kingdom.
Give me just one last kiss,
while the sun sets upon us,
before the nighttime clears way,
giving light to our endless path.

It's kind of funny, because I spelled it rubble at first, and the stupid spell check in my browser kept saying it was misspelled and corrected it to that. I can't stand having red lines in my writing so I let it change, I figured most people would understand what I meant.

Is this about America?

For some reason, this reminds me of the old Mad Max moives with Mel Gibson of the 80's. Earth has become an apocolypse and those who are left have to do hella battle to survive. And if humanity don't change our ways, we will end up like that. Your prequel fits todays world to the tee. Friendly Advice: It's "rubble" not "ruble". Ruble is the Russian dollar. And this will be gone too if again, we don't change our ways.
