End Of The Beginning by cosmicbound End Of The Beginning by cosmicbound
Is it the beginning of the end? No, it is the end of the beginning.

Is this the start of ever lasting conflict? No, it is the start of everlasting peace.

And once the rubble settles, peace will become a reality.


Just a poetic thought that came upon me, so i felt like making an apocalyptic photo manipulation. Ah well hope you all like it, click download for the wallpaper package. Thanks for all feedback!

Stocks from [link] and a nuclear test image i scoured from somewhere on the internet.

Just a thought: why is it that we humans seem to think that in order to live peacefully, we must kill each other first?
cosmicbound Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2008
Not quite sure that many think that just killing the other is to bring about any long term peace, but humans often innately adopt a selfish method in order to ensure their survival. It offers immediate gratification to the materialistic senses; a shortcut to temporary survival. Thus this behaviour manifests in a grander scale than just a human alone, being reflected in their societies also. As long as this behaviour is deemed necessary, absolute peace can only be assured with the annihilation of all - where once was motion and conflict, none. Thus this piece.

Dude, you might already know this, but you remind me of God Is An Astronaut for this piece:

I think the horizontal clouds that are lit up in the background should have gone behind the buildings so they don't look so "blended on top". Other than those two cents I think it looks sweet :D

Wow. It's incredible. And too true as well. Nice poem. :)

.....a scary, but an unimaginable peace :(

A forever long silence in an area now inhospitible for a generation.

Peace should never come at such a price like this.

Let us work forward, not backward, and hope that this day does not come. Let it be that it does not take this to invoke peace.

One thing though...the buildings seem too transparent. I see what you're doing, but it seems as though all the buildings in the corner seem to blend in too well.

Ah, fair comment. Thanks!
