“We can never be gods, after all–but we can become something less than human with frightening ease.”
― N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
To dream of Gods and omens in darkest night
brings no tranquility
for the soul wrestles and fights
with so little ability
to overcome the futility
of mortals against deities
and their predictions of what’s coming
In the stark light of day.
