gods

The gods are selfish, he declared.
and I understood.
you can try so very hard
to appease them
but who knows when they are
satisfied?

They wreck fire and burning sulphur
their wrath shakes the earth
their wars destroys the universe
who can stand against them?

we have no power, no will, no right.

Some did try
They failed;
but we must applaud them.
for unlike other frightened mortals,
They did what They could.

Perhaps some
have succeeded.
But they passed away
remembered no more by Time.

And the gods live on
Creating and wrecking.

The gods are selfish
and we are nothing.


haha...got inspired by what Luke said in the movie Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. It sounds lame though. What you think?
