Paroles de Epilogue, Pt. 1

The torment was ended
The people scattered over the country
desperate, leaderless, starved
the thousands who had fled by sea
including the one most dear to me
all would return the pulse of life
growing stronger and stronger would beat again

As life returns to normal,
the question of another attack from Mars
causes universal concern
Is our planet safe?
or is this time of peace merely a reprieve?
It may be that across the immensity of space,
they have learned their lessons
and even now await their opportunity
Perhaps the future belongs not to us
but to the Martians
