Children of Dust,
I bring you glad tidings.
Fortunate indeed are the young
For they will witness the Great Birth.
A new era will be born,
But great and fearsome will be the pangs.
Brother will rise against Brother.
The streams will be fouled
And the soil shall drink its fill;
Dry winds will scatter the dust
And nations will sink below the waves.
All this shall the Prophet oversee,
He who gives swords to children.
Great is His wrath against
The Children of Light,
And His children will make war
Against the Men of Truth.
Many will stumble,
None shall rise.
Then shall come the Child of Light
And with a Word slay the Prophet,
Ending the pangs of Birth.
A new era is born.
Let him with ears hear.

Again, this was another dream which was quite vivid. I saw a beautiful man at a podium, talking to the masses. He called the children forth and gave them swords, encouraging them to practice. He did not warn them of the danger, but delighted in seeing them kill each other. This was witnessed by me and another, abhorred at what we saw while the rest of the people cheered and watched with glee. Very disturbing, as this speaker encouraged them to seek out those who frowned at the display, and kill them as the children continued their sibling slaughter.

I do have some strange dreams alright.

hmm...wow

although this read as a "call to arms", a call to "disarm" perhaps?

I like it inside your head. Surreal at times, sometimes a little scary, but vivid and full of wonder too. (Did I just describe Willy Wonka's chocolate factory? I's teasin' of course )

I'm having a wonderful mind munch bro!

yay YOU!
