Barren, it lay barren. 
Your false religion corrupted the minds. 
It spread faster than a virus.
You had something to prove, yet you used it to gain false trust. 

Your covenant reached out to everyone.  
Your militia cut a thousand lives while you shaped others for the "greater good".

Your years were nothing but torment. 
Torment to others and also yourself. 
You lived empty years 

I hope you're happy with yourself because I am not.
