Not of This World

Intent to fit right in while here
So far from home his deepest fear
Became what pressed him on this day
For mission his was not to stay

He left this rock he once called home
Summoned by one, by one alone
That made all things including him
For such a time to go and win

Win one more if one he'd find
Worth saving for all of time

This rock of age had changed for worse
Hell ruled the land and also cursed
Each soul that walked was now a slave
Slave to trade that strayed and stayed

Stayed to long living their dreams
Of no real good but badly schemed
Here their plans they hatched and bred
Selfish in sin, breeding misled

Yet in his heart he knew he'd find
One of worth who towed the line
One engulfed by firestorm
That raged around those yet reborn

And so unsheathed became the sword
Of light, of GOD, The Lord
Striking the wall of Fire bred
That consumed man and upon fed

There he found the one last soul
Calling to her come now take hold
For this is not where you shall perish
But leave to live where life is cherished

And so in light that blazed from sky
From Heavens door from fingers preyed
He took his leave with her in tow
Leaving behind what would be so
