I see the future. It’s not pretty. It’s a hellish symphony trapped inside my head.
Time stops. Trees burn and crumble to ash. Waters freeze over. People in stasis beg for death but the Angel of Mercy ignores their cries.
Some call it the end. But I know it’s just the beginning. Slowly but surely we adapt. In all the ugliness of destruction is the beauty of evolution – the monstrous beauty of regenesis.
Skins toughen; harden. Eyes sink and sharpen. Gills sprout, furs thicken. Teeth become tools.
We divulge into mayhem and then find peace. It’s both catastrophic and cathartic. Life is precious; it’s worth killing for.
I see the future. It’s not pretty, but it’s pretty damn amazing.
