It was a time of ignorance
and a time of enlightenment
an era of awareness
and one of darkness
The enlightened sought
the light in the heavens and beyond
the ignorant worked in darkness
setting light to the treasures of the enlightened,
all buildings, books, works of art and heritage
were demolished under the axes of the demons of darkness
yet, everything remained in the collective memory of the Light-workers
The dark demons built high walls around the prisons
where the Light-workers were confined
Speaking was forbidden, even looking eye to eye
The prisoners who broke the law
had their tongues cut and eyes removed
The blinded and muted Light-workers
developed a communication skill
of transferring thoughts without speaking or eye-contact
Waves of thoughts travelled in the air
while the dark demons carried out their atrocities unaware
The frequencies of thoughts became so high and powerful,
deafening the dark demons who
failed to complete their mission of destruction,
as the wavelength of thoughts
damaged their sensory systems
Unable to move or act, they lay still on the ground
The Light-workers fed their minds with ideas and
knowledge about the planet and the universe,
theories of law and justice for all,
science, art, history, philosophy, and
awareness of nature and the balance of creation
Dark-workers awoke with the beam of enlightenment
in their eyes.
They learned to communicate without speaking,
seeing beyond the perceived and feeling without using their senses.
Dark-workers became Light-workers
moving humanity into a new dimension
Still, some Dark-workers remained,
in the periphery of humanity,
scheming plans to carry out their dark intentions,
to make a revolution to change the world.
Light-workers ambushed them and built high walls around their towns
so that they would stay confined within their own surroundings
unable to infect their backward ideas into the enlightened zone.
The angels in the heavens watched the humans in dismay,
“When will they learn?” they asked their Leader, the wisest of All.
“Only when they discover grey, against the black and white.
It will take time, but I have hopes for my children.”
