After It All - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor

Beyond the edge of the world
stars shine blindly,
unwilling to reveal a ghostly glow
certain to be mistaken for life,
after it all we will regain
and replace everything.

To show uncertain emotion
can only bring hate,
beyond the edge of night
all rests with fate,
after it all we will survive
the battles end.

In ever flowing space
lay nothing at all,
until eternity ended
in a huge stone wall,
beyond this giant monolith
lay absolute nothing at all.

After it all we will build,
much to make, none to break,
beyond it all lay peace,
tomorrow is just a beginning,
our world shall be free
of the bonds that live in hate.
