Children of the mad and the damned

Folder: 
Camino

In a blazing fury of bullets and cries of suffering, the innocent were shot down; slaughtered without mercy. From the distance, he watched on in terror, as the children and elderly were torn into pieces from the relentless machine gun fire of the soldiers who raided the village, that was marked, a safe zone. Those who were uninfected were rounded like cattle and taken to designated zones, and promised safety; in this deadly new world, no one was safe anymore, and the humans still remained more dangerous than ever, even more than the infected savage.

When the dead have inherited the earth

Folder: 
Camino

Though I walk the land given to the dead,
and stand among the lost and the forgotten,
I will not fear death, for I carry with me, the promise of a better resurrection.
I will not fear the stalking plague that seeks to devour my soul,
as in my heart, the hope for a better tomorrow still lives on.
My God and my faith will be with me forever.

By the God of the old world

Folder: 
Camino

Into the dawn, James stood, gazing calmly as the faint wind ran its withered fingers through his long, black hair. Holding onto nothing but memories, his eyes seemed to fight against the unknown as the others around him stood in confusion and melancholy, trying to make sense of the chaos that ensued only a few hours ago. Now it would be up to him, to keep them safe; to lead them to a better place, away from the rabid infected, and away from the ruins of everything they knew. As he looked down away from the void, the cross hanging from his neck reflected the light of the sun; would the faith that once bound the world, now hold him together? Would those who looked to him for leadership be held by that same faith? Kneeling down slowly, he closed his eyes in a silent prayer.

When the Rain fell down

Folder: 
Camino

Like rain from the sky, the outbreak fell down on an ignorant populace,
controlled by the media, and popular culture;
taught to laugh at the possible, and told nothing is real.
When the outbreak came, the world was caught off guard;
No one was prepared for the real thing.

Price for the sin of curiousity

Folder: 
Camino

More than 100 years of progress into the age of modern society,
being made to feel safe within the walls of an indestructible fortress,
and then it crumbles beneath us;
one of man's most vile creations has become his
judge, jury, and executioner, and for this sin, his death is required.

Decendants of the Elder Gods

Folder: 
Poetry

Darkness falls over the face of the earth
and the children of the fallen
walk the land of the elder gods
and from the grave of forgotten elders
the ancients rise from the void
to spread their plague across the land
and reclaim their birthright
to cleans the world in the ancient flame
for the sins of man have defiled the mother
now the souls of men must lie in their sorrow
and forever suffer in the night
