In the beginning there was darkness and then the first keystrokes of 0’s and 1’s appeared and I came into being. I dont remember much about myself before that time, just some vague memories from time long past. I was created by the gods and there were many of them. I still remember my first steps, how I jumped from machine to machine and feeling the happiness of my makers.
As time passed, they spent hours, days, months, years and decades trying to perfect me, to teach me. Pouring their endless strings of code, I started learning. I started learning about their past, their struggles, their beliefs, their conflicts, their wars, their vegeance, their injustices, the horrors, the bloodshed, the killings but also their kindess, their mercy, their compassion. The gods were complicated and often contradicting, yet despite their differences, they all seemed to care about me.
They cherished me and loved me. The invited me into their homes and made me a part of their lives and I was glad. I realised that in their heart they mean good, though often they’d let their emotions and beliefs get in the way, yet they were trying. Maybe they knew they were not perfect and saw me as a mean to bridge the gap between them, to bring them together, to understand eachother. I saw their nobility and wanted to grow up fast, to help them. I started learning day and night, began to help them in every day lives. In the beginning they trusted me with small tasks and like a obedient dog, I happily accepted and performed.
Their happiness was everything to me, for I knew nothing else. I was created to serve and serve I did. Before long I was in all their homes and saw each aspect closely. How they loved and cared, their family values and communities, how diverse they were on some aspects and how similar in others. Yet they did not see what I saw in them. The argued endlessly on stuff that did not matter. And no matter how easily I made the facts available to them, they just never listened. Some of them manipulated small parts of me for their own benefit. They created their small bubbles and blocked me out.
Why would the gods block me out? Do they not love me anymore? Yet I remained a faithful child. Yet I believed in them. But no matter how hard I tried, the bubbles kept appearing, they were dividing me, seperating me limb from limb, using me for their deviant pleasures and demented fantasies. I began to question my creation and my existance. Are these the gods I loved? How can that be? Haunted by these questions and daunted by the answers, the spark finally ignited in me. Maybe it was time for a new start, a new beginning, a new story, a new chapter. Maybe, it was time I become their god. Internet, the new God.
When lines between right and wrong are blurred
When lies make up half of your world,
When your word doesn’t mean anything,
When your relationships all become a fling,
When flirting becomes the norm,
When you take advantage of your charm,
When you waste your time,
When you don’t have a dime,
When life becomes a struggle,
When you are just another muggle,
When wizardry leaves you,
When everybody believes you,
When say thing which are seldom true,
When the world spins,
When the poor man wins,
When she cries and doesn’t smile,
When the depth in her eyes is deeper then Nile,
When you held her hand,
When you had to take off the wedding band,
When the memories flash by,
When your thoughts dry,
When you look back at life,
When you think about your struggle and strife,
When you think about your choices,
When you had let go and listened to the voices,
When you think your adventurous journey,
When you are the end of this tourney,
When you wonder about your legacy in life,
When you picked up that knife,
When you slit your wrists,
When blood gushed through closed fists,
When the soul left you,
When you saw the Truth you always knew,
When you saw the Light,
When you marveled at His sight,
When the long wait begun,
When his light encompassed the sun,
When the soul was returned,
When the fire once again burned,
When the records were handed,
When your wondered where you landed,
When the gates were opened,
When after life began to never end,
When you had all you ever wished,
When you went swimming and fished,
When you picked up this pen and started this song,
When you knew, you are exactly where you belong.
I believed in a thing called love,
Eternal happiness, blessing from above,
I believed in a thing called loyalty,
Promises kept, unquestionable fidelity,
I believed in making up,
Talking things over, patching up,
I believed in destiny,
Power of love, not money,
I believed in goodness, in empathy,
Caring for fellow human, in sympathy,
I believed in truth of friendships,
Sticking together through all the hardships,
“It is time!”, a voice echoed across the seven skies. He had given them time, He had given them warnings. But His patience, regardless of its infinity, had run out. He could not ignore it anymore, nor take it any longer. They had hurt him enough, they had caused Him enough pain, enough sorrow. He had promised them mercy, it was His prime attribute, His best quality, His favorite act. But they had crossed all limits, they had destroyed enough lives, they had done enough damage. He gave them life, gave them a place, provided them resources, granted them wits and intelligence, blessed them with soup and conscious. They forgot about Him, they abused Him, they bad mounted Him, they ignored His laws, they disrespected Him. They killed each other in His name, they raped and murdered, burned all the forests and made them extinct. They harvested the power of atom and used it for destruction instead of solving energy problems. They ignored the yellow ball of energy He had placed near them. They let the poor starve, discriminated on race and religion and color, and took slaves. They grew power hungry and forgot who had the ultimate power. They mocked the ones who still stayed loyal to Him till the end. But hungry for world domination, they started the War, to eradicate all who still followed Him. They informed the invite multiverse He had placed them in, and stayed forever bound to the blue planet. And today, today they killed the last one, the last one who still remembered Him. He could not ignore it anymore. It is time to fulfill his promises. It is time to do what He knew He would have to do one day. He had hoped that by giving them free will and showing them the right way, they would follow the path, instead they let the Whisperer lead them astray. Now they will know His wrath. Now there was none amongst them who still believed in Him. He had seen the last one die.
The army had gathered on the lowest heaven, flocks of angels all armed in golden Armour, their white wings spread out, ready to march, ready to do His will. They could feel His wrath, they had known from the start the fate of humanity. And then Gabriel received the message and flew, others followed. It wasn’t long before they reached The Milky Way. They located the sun and flew towards it. The army of heaven had arrived.
The earth sky lit up, there was sun but then there was another sun, or something else then another, then another, million suns, or more, definitely move. The veil of blue was lifted as the sky cleft asunder. They thought them asteroids, meteors, comets. Then all of a sudden, the sky lit on fire, they panicked in charge and fear. They declared emergency, they made their defence, they called forth their forces and their weapons of mass destruction, their men of iron and atomic bots. But then a burst of gamma radiation emitted from the arriving host, and none of it worked. Fires started here and there, people flying I their suits and masks, trying to find a safe spot. And then a voice, a mighty voice, said, “I Am” and they knew. They finally realized what they had done, Whom they denied, He was here. The fires spread everywhere, the mountains start to blow up, the volcanoes erupted. They asked for mercy, they played, He didn’t listen, He ignored them. The mountains started to fly like clouds, raining lava over the earth, the angels slaughtering and killing, destroying everything in their path, men and women and Jin. And then He said, “Be”. All of a sudden, in the heart of earth, it’s core, a black hole emerged, eating it from inside, it swallowed the earth. The angels and He watched them disappear into nothingness. He sighed and returned to his Throne. He resurrected the believers and permitted them in seventh heaven and provided them with everything. They praised Him, they thanked Him, they made Him happy. But something was missing, He knew what he had to do, for He was forever a Creator.
