power shift

passing of the torch between rulers of the earth

By Alivia VarvelPublished 4 days ago 1 min read
Top Story - May 2024

for millennia upon millennia,

they ruled.

when one passed out of all thought and time,

another took the throne.

whether a giant among the trees or a beast in the clouds,

all was theirs.

did they know they would become nothing but a shadow and a shell?

do we?
