Let Man Live

See the universe unfold into a full stop.
Let the words flow forth.
Give me the power.
The power to move.
The power to live.
The power to die.
Give me the power of all eternity that I will become the one undeniable force in everyone’s lives.
Let all who die become me.
When I die, let me become everyone.
Let me live for ever.
Let everyone be immortal.
Let the sins of the wicked be forgotten.
Let the good of the virtuous be forgotten.
Let man live as man was meant to live.
Without sin.
Without virtue.
Let man live.
Live as man.
