Voluntarily Isolated


Yes I know I am alone
Shrouded inside of my darkness
The world: so cruel
How can I stay?
All the world soon shall pay

Humanity is ripe for judgement
But I cannot judge; it is not my way
Therefore I must wait for doom
Inside myself in solitude

Can there be another way?

We call ourselves 'advanced'
We act as Lords of all Creation
Set by God
On his throne
I do not think that this is so

Every horror we commit
Is even worse than all the rest
We use our higher minds in order
To heighten our atrocities

I am becoming ashamed of my own existence. Is that fair?

I have lost all sense of direction
My mind wanders all through space
Endless darkness
Wherever I turn
What is there that I can mourn?

I cannot blame a human being
Because I am one, and we are erred
Then I must sit back and let
The world take its destined course

Maybe one day I shall know the answer that eludes me so.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
