Remember, remember…
Memento Mori…
Nothing lasts forever…
Remember your mortality…

 

I am the red raven.
Red is my lustre…
…and Black is my plumage…
My duty is to deliver your soul…
To carry you to the afterlife…

 

Perched on the tree of your life…
I am there sitting…
I am there watching…
I am there waiting…
For your life’s inevitable demise…

 

In your final moments, your darkest hour…
While your life passes before your eyes…
While death creeps slowly through your veins to devour…
while you’re struggling, fighting for your the last gasps of air to breath…
At the time of your mortal life’s end…

 

I will be there perched on your life’s tree…
I will be there sitting…
I will be there watching…
I will be there waiting…

 

Remember, remember…
Memento Mori…
Nothing lasts forever…
Remember your mortality…

 

I will be there in your last moments…
In that moment, I will race to you quickly…
With my talons, I will snag your soul…
…Swiftly, separating your soul from your mortal body…

 

In the blink of an eye…
Your long torment…
Your ardent struggle…
Will end instantly…

 

The next time you wake…
Will be a new a new life, a new beginning…
Immortal and unending…

 

In your final hour till your last moment…
When I come forth do not be in lament…
Be at peace when you catch a glimpse of me landing…
On a tree watching you while perching…
For I have come to end your life’s painful tormenting…
To attend to your pain, your long and arduous suffering…

The Undying

The Undying
Seeing through the eyes of the Immortal Observer

The Immortal


 

Immortal.
That’s what they call me.
The exiled; The unknown…

 

Walking past men through the centuries.
Friendship, Love, and Compassion.
Rivalry, Hate, and Anger.
Loss of Hope and Death.
Honor and Resolve.
Liberty and Justice.
Pride, Injustice, and Prejudice.
The difference between Transparency and Hypocrisy.

 

Greed… Man’s thirst to take from another.
Murder… Men conspiring to kill another.
War… Man’s Blood Lust and Hunger for more Power.

 

Walking amidst this earth for more than a thousand years.
My eyes has witnessed them all.
Seeing my loved ones while they were still young.
Until they grow old and leave this earth.
Now, i had no more tears to shed.
In the end, I am all alone.
Watching over men as they destroy one another.
Watching earth bleed slowly is kind of depressing.
They fear that which they do not know.
And go to war blinded by their false hopes.
A never ending cycle of love and war.
A never ending desire to destroy and rebuild.
A never ending cycle of pride, honor, horror, suffering, and shame.
Trying to accomplish what they do not understand.
A violently unending cycle.
I pity them as I pity myself.
We are no different from one another.
We are just the same shameless beings.
Making a mockery of principles and ideals.
Spitting to honor’s face.

 

I am the Immortal, the undying, the exiled, the unknown…
Seeing men shame themselves using honor as a facade
has turned my heart to steel.
Without feeling, without remorse.
No more tears, no more fears.

 

I will continue on watching these men.
As they walk the plank towards extinction.
Alone.
Watching over from a distance.
