As Giants Sleep

Into darkness I settle 
As the ocean depths swell,
Surrounded, yet cornered 
By creatures that dwell…

 A terrible vision
Now fills me with fear,
For the fate of my people,
Before me, appears… 

What a horrid behemoth
Mankind has become,
For they’ve mocked what is perfect 
And, to evil, succumbed.

And gods have sent warnings
To reset their aim,
But none here do listen,
For none here feel shame.

And while they are focused
On trivial things,
And while they seek evil,
What horror God brings,

For as it is told in the
Proverbs of old,
The fear of the Lord
Giveth wisdom untold.

And lest a man fear
That which God will reveal,
He’ll never know truth,
And he’ll never be healed,

But if he is humble,
If wisdom he seeks,
If, by faith, he’s guided
Then God, through him, speaks.
