"Dark Mountain: A story of lies"
The Dark Mountain towered; a silent witness to what had for so long been a pleasant and green land filled with life and love; knowing that, while everything existed in harmony, the desperate balance between the glory and goodness which presently held reign and the waste which was surely to come, was at a perilous equilibrium and all the excuses, no matter how cleverly used to keep the fragile pieces together, would no longer hold sway for the maniacs who controlled every aspect of an endurable life; so as the terrible death slowly escaped the deep prison, which had held it fast for ages upon ages beneath the gigantic mountain, once again confusion and misery made its way up to the bustling surface throwing the small planet into chaos one atom at a time.
The Dark Mountain looked over the quiet, tranquil glow of the multitude below, where one by one their lights were being extinguished, as the escaping darkness was drawing closed the final rays of that magic fire brought down from the heavens and breathed into their hearts so long ago; darkening one heart at a time, the shadow quickened and gained, as it moved from one heart to another, dousing every hope they held as truth; although the plague came close to destruction every time it moved through the twilight and into the illumination of light's influence, it never once faltered, slowly taking one life at a time and plunging the world into darkness, dimming the lives of all the land to a much darker and sinister reality.
