The Breaking of the Seal  

A poem by Lauren Ciara McConnell

The Breaking of the Seal

An environment formed from casual neglect

Destruction.

Emerges an infinite flame which ravages

Destruction.

Just an ember of the amazon

Destruction.

Caught and captured by the wave

Destruction.

How long can we endure?

Destruction.

7 seals to be broken

The beginning

Destruction.

Humanity's permanence damaging nature

Destruction.

A red moon is rising

Destruction.

A warning not yet heeded

Yet there is resistance

Action

Create

Destroy

We create

We destroy

We create

We destroy

We destroy another artists handiwork

Not our own

We've become stewards of Destruction

Yet hope

Yet hope

A new day

Eden restored

A promise of a new heaven and a new earth

Can self destruction become part of the process of creation?
