The Final Stand

On this majestic mountain peak, we stand against evil. The blood flows below us like a raging river. The air is heavy with fear as we breathe in its hopelessness. Soon, the stars will be seized from us in a swirling cloud of hate. They are writing humanity’s loveless obituary. We must fight.

They came from the stars
Conquest, war, famine, and death
The apocalypse.


Embrace your inner child with love. D. L. Finn

  1. Oh my goodness, you’ve captured it — the Apocalypse — and I shudder at the thought. May these next months, of prodding through the mud of an election, pass quickly…so we can all have peace. ♥

    1. Thanks, Gwen. Yes, I’m with you I hope the next few weeks zoom by. I’m looking forward to lots of peace!

  3. The world seems like heading toward that direction at times, Denise. I do wonderful how these all end. Very powerful take on the prompt. I hope some of us will overcome the seemingly evil ones.
