ONLY

Only the spiritually lonely,
Through disregard...
Towards the One and Only,

Through their haze...
Life has become their maze,
Since Kaf Fa Ra...
Is what they crave,

Every braggart and boaster...
Hopelessly...
Propelled closer...
Towards the searing fire...

That never quells...
For these denizens of hell,
As they inch closer and closer...
Towards the flames that bears their names,

Their heat rising...
Disapating like smoke into the air,
Body becomes colder...
Souls enveloped in dispair...

Violently ripped out...
As though by a thief...
Angelic forces show no mercy or relief...

Displicably flung by decree...
Like a hot weighted...
Foul smelling rock...
Through a hoop,

Spiraling down...
Like a weighted ball,
In their angony and confusion they cry out and call,

But there are none to respond to their call,

By an evil one...
Deceived and duped,
Minds of the masses,

He continues to recruit...
Their thoughts...
He continues to pollute...

The whisperer
Has masterfully played
Them like a flute,

The straight way they did refute,
No one does dispute...
With them the truth is mute,

If only the spiritually lonely
Had bowed down before the One and Only,
