The WatchTower.

All along the WatchTower

the angels kept their vigil.

The velocity of Light was changing.

The wayward souls

would be ramping up.

The innocents would trust

and find their way.

but the confused ones,

there more for their families

and doubters than themselves,

would begin the calls for help.

Dispatches from the WatchTower

would soon commence,

rescue parties delegated

here and there,

to stay the hand of a suicide,

to touch a fevered brow,

to soothe a broken heart.

The WatchTower was preparing.
