Seven Seals of the scroll to warrior princess
   
Religion, fought over for centuries, each of us believes in our own way
Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, the Jews, Christians, even atheists, when we are really down, we all pray to some kind of Supreme Being
If only a God, representing the universe, being one, with this, does it really matter, to what we pray
It's all the same, whether becoming one with the universe, or believing in a higher power, when a man if facing death, in what he believes, to this he will sing.
 
In Christianity, at the end of days, it is foretold of seven seals, these seals will bring forth, what most of us know as Armageddon
The first four of these seals are thought to be the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, better known, as famine, plague, martyrdom, and world wars.
Look around! What do you think?  Seems to me they are already here! Spreading there venom, every where under the Sun
From them there is no getting away, as they seem to already be knocking at our door.
 
These seals, said to be taken from an ancient scroll, to only be opened, until the end of days are upon all of mankind
The fifth seal, is supposed to represent the souls crying out, for redemption, as they forever burn within, a lake of fire
They cry to escape a destiny, fore told of so very long ago, I feel for these souls, regardless, them I wish I could save
But just as others, I am only human, if there was a way to help them, I wouldn't be satisfied, unless the answer, I could find.
 
The sixth seal, I think part of it is happening today, not in the future but what is foretold here is already within our reach
This speaks of great earth quakes, all I can say is look around, the moon shall turn to blood, not to be taken literally, I think maybe blood spilled in the space race, this already done
One of the Apollo missions back in the sixties, just something to think about
The stars shoot from heaven, we see shooting stars, every day after everything said, everything done
The sun itself turns black, this could be a prolong eclipse, maybe even a volcano, spewing ash into the air, at times this happens, in this there is no doubt.
 
It also fore tells of the population of Earth being terrified, these things will surely terrify me
The last seal, the scariest of all, the judgement of God or the Supreme Being, no where to run, no where to hide
Whatever lies before us, if we keep down the same path, mankind will end up paying a tremendous fee
Destroying ourselves, now this I believe, if we keep on, devastation and destruction, we will take as a bride.
 
This is only one scenario. of a future, I hope not set in stone, seems we are warned of this even from the time of the ancients
Mayan, Inca, Aztec, just to name a few, that try and warn us of a destruction, unlike anything that has ever been seen
I hope our future, we can change, in the fore told prophesies, I hope we can make a dent
The prophecies, no matter where they come from, we need to listen, and walk the fine line, that lies between.

Wow Lanaia you went deep into history and religion and still made it thought provoking. Only someone on top of their game can do that.
