Because it was needed

They dragged along on the land of the nameless nation
waterless, the seas blackened long ago
the trees whisper from their smothering depths
It made colossal sound ripping the air from a distance, It questioned,
It stood Unopposed, It marched to a future of demise
but it was needed
They left regard behind, They embraced flawed logic
They abandoned reasoning long before
Their sanity became blurred, They continued, unwaveringly committed
They sought denial for comfort
They stood idle while It stole more memories and unknowingly, more futures
but it was needed
It’s growth was exponential with time, and with time They became lost
It came for everything, and It took everything
but it was needed
until It came for Them
They looked for Their defence, what was rightfully Theirs
but It took them long ago, They tried to remember the reason
but it was needed
The shackles were now tightened, the totality continued
Their minds where now lost, Their aching now unbearable
existence for Them now passive, a burden
but it was needed
until It had nothing left to reap with it’s double edged sword
one side named apathy, the other complacency
They stared at the blade, frightened by It until…
They began to see a reflection upon the blade
of Themselves, and Their eyes grow wide, Their perceptions become heightened
Their resolve strengthens, epiphanies light up like fireworks, collectiveness springs
They chant, Their echoes reverberate through the cogs
shattering It’s layers of deception
They cheered, They turned to see what was left after the deceit had departed
and saw nothing but Themselves, so they embraced
because it was needed

Thanks Jamie.

I wasn't sure where to put this, say the Literature forum maybe or a forum for Poems, maybe the mods can move this if it bothers at all.
