Eventually (The Eternals)

The Danube pours red
In turbulent waves of blood
The Rhineland’s pulsing vein
It is a symbol, a statement
‘We are Eternal’ it says
‘We are so much more than you’ it screams
With a rabid desperation
It is a cry to be noticed
A wail of remembrance
A promise to rule forever
But every slap of crimson wake
Every undulating moment
Postpones an inevitable exactitude
They are not
And everybody dies

Thank you for reading

      1. I do sense the inescapable sadness in the story as well. Something we are all able to connect with, I believe.
        Good Morning 🙂
