~We are the watchers
~We see what goes on in the world around us.
~We see what has been in the past .
~We see the things that are to come ,
~And yet we sit and watch
~We ponder upon these things
yet are not driven
to choose a side of right or wrong
~For the more we see,
and the more we ponder,
the more the boundry
between the two polarities
All are right and all are wrong.
~When beings make the choice to act,
they are wrong.
When they just exist,
they are right.
~BUt even this statement is false,
as those who act are existing as they know
and striving for what they believe is "right".
~As beings strive more and more
for what they deem is right,
The more friction is created.
~Action spurs reaction
And it escalates to broken dreams, hearts and bloodshed.
~But we are the watchers.
We watch as humanity scrambles for a cause,
looking for salvation.
~We watch as some awaken and realize
the only thing to be saved from
is humanity itself.
~We welcome the new brothers and sisters.
~We do not choose a side,
For there is no side to choose.
~We exist and nothing more
and guide those who are willing
to be able to do the same.
~We celebrate life, and do not
fall to the useless practice of uttering idle curses.
~We enjoy and embrace those who
cross our paths with hearts of purity.
~And we long to do the same
for those that condemn themselves
by closing the gates of their heart.
For in doing so,
they close the gates to the kingdom of spirit.
~We wonder how long they will ignore us as we reach out to them.
How long will they turn away?
~Yet we do not weep and gnash our teeth at what is.
For everything serves, even in destruction.
~We do not weep at the destruction of what is.
~For the destruction of what IS,
bears the birth of what is to come.
~We withdraw from those around us.
~We rally not for any cause.
~We withdraw from the fire, the battle, the push for action
and we wait.
~We exist and allow others to do the same. This is love.
~We watch as those who push for domination
destroy each other,
cleansing and clearing the way for what's to come.
~We wait for that which is promised.
We watch and wait for our reign together again.
Our time of peace and celebration
The day when the abyss is sealed for ever
and all simply exist and strive and toil no more.
We are the watchers.

|The actions of the greedy and selfish of the world have allways saddened me, I have allways thought of how wonderful a place the world could be if all could try to see the whole picture.But I've realized that most refuse because they think they have to believe in something greater than themselves. Who do the selfish and greedy of the world believe in? Who do those who call themselves good believe in? Both are flawed. I think if we survive, it will be the good, kind, and considerate thoughts and actions of those of us who really believe in ourselves that will save us. I have allways been a watcher....

|Of course the title caught me, and I had to come and see what you knew about the Nephilim Gigantes. Without mentioning Ezekial or even the gnostic texts, you have placed your writing firmly within a long tradition concerned with those once known as Watchers, or Fallen Angels, which resonates in my poetic soul.|

|Astute & profound observations...loved the graphic, guardian angels are indeed watchers of men but the joys & sorrows of humanity must be a heavy burden to bear.|

Perhaps if I wait long enough the end will justify the means? Time is slowly running out. Well done.
