Of Gods and Omens

“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 
and waiting…
In the stark light of day.
