Entry 321: My World Of Peace

Once I wished upon a star

That my world no longer grow apart

No more wars

No more pain

Surely that’d be a perfect existence

For everyone…

Closing my eyes

I thought to myself

If people stopped hating

We’d stop growing apart

Everything would be perfect

If we all had a heart

Nuclear war was a possible thing

Till I awoke the very next day

Suddenly guns were turned in

All citizens were happy to let go of them

The nuclear war we were about to start

Suddenly fell apart…

All nations agreed to give up such arms

Citing if humanity is to last

We can not keep such things

All hate in people’s hearts

Had suddenly been forgotten

No one cared about ones race or creed

Who they loved

What nation they came into reality from

Religion was no longer a thing

All anyone wanted was peace

Crime had suddenly stopped that day

As the weeks went on

There wasn’t any…

The worlds economy had boomed

Everyone now lived in harmony…

A more perfect existence could not be found

I couldn’t believe it!

My wish

Had become

My reality!

I grew happy as I no longer saw people sleeping on the streets

Every person had a home

Everyone was happy!

That’s when I first saw him

The man with the smiling face

A scar shut his right eye

He held a book in his left

Watching from afar

He then wrote something…

The next second

A car had wrecked

A woman had been hit by a drivers mistake

Or so it seemed at the time…

The woman died at the scene

The man soon collected the light that came from her body

A simple wave

A smile that never left

The man vanished before me…

The ambulance left with her body that day

I felt something was off with reality

I slept horribly that night

The mans face was still there in my mind

Suddenly a loud banging came

I awoke

A cold sweat overtaking me!

Looking through my peep hole

There was nothing there

Unable to go back to sleep

I turned on the television…

The news was on

There was a story about the accident

Just as the story was about to really get going

The knocking started again

This time the sound was growing

I checked my door again

The woman from the accident

Covered in blood

She screamed!

Begging me to let her in!

HE’S COMING! HE’S COMING!!!! she said

Then suddenly she vanished before me

In her place as a final scream rang out

The man with the smile & the scar stared at me

Putting a finger to his lips

I realized he wanted silence from me

Then with a wave that sent chills down my spine

The man said

Have a wonderful day!

Before vanishing before me…

I did not sleep the remainder of the night

Every time I tried, he was there

Smiling at me

The world was at peace

Things were perfect

So what was wrong

In that moment?

What was off about that man?

What was I missing

That likely sat

In front of me?

The next day,

The news was on again

The woman’s death was ruled

A suicide

Apparently the driver that hit her

Had not made any mistakes

Apparently she’d jumped in front of him…

I stood to get my coffee

When suddenly I heard a scream

A woman’s body fell past my window at great speed

I barely caught it before


Looking down

She was no longer among the living…

In the crowd grew a horrific scream of shock

Looking amongst the screams though

I saw him again

Standing over the woman’s body…

As though he knew I already watched

He looked up

Putting his finger to his teeth

He smiled & asked silence of me…

A chill grew across my spine

Then suddenly a light came from the woman’s body

Soon enough it faded

Along with the man

I wasn’t sure what to think of it?

What was wrong?

Why had she killed herself?

We lived in such a perfect world…

Who would think to end their life?

Now that my wish brought about paradise?

The days went on

The suicides grew

It was all the news would talk about soon

Like rain,

The bodies began to fall

A man on a subway killed himself

Another intentionally drove off a bridge

One man had cut himself to bits

The scarring was sickening to say the least

The blood that flowed out of his body

Creating a most gruesome scene…

In the reports I could see the man

Always standing in the distance

Months went on

The body count grew

Including both of our local news anchors


On live tv

Decided to burn away reality

One drank battery acid

The other set themselves alight

I felt shock!


I felt myself losing my grip


The months went on and the suicide count went up

I felt myself growing sick

Sometimes I’d sleep

Then I’d see the deaths

Along with the man collecting them…

The reports would pop up on the news

At a later time

After the dreams…

I felt like I was losing my mind!

One year

Then the next

I began to lose track of bodies I’d seen

The world was in a mass suicide

I didn’t understand


Still, they continued to DIE!

I couldn’t sleep…

The nights I didn’t,

They were still there

If not in dreams

It was visions

The man along with them,

Their deaths,

Clearly as they were happening

I was losing my mind, right?!

No…it’d become apparent…

…It’d happened too many times…

I was seeing the deaths as they happened

They were being reported later


I could never stop them

There was a knocking soon at my door

A man stood there

Before saying

Special delivery!

I’d not ordered a package

Still, I figured

What could it hurt?

Maybe I’d be murdered

No longer having to live

This reality…

I opened the door

The man looked up

There was a terrifying smile

Then a loud laugh

An explosion!!!

His blood and bone had flown

I should be dead

Am I?

I felt a happiness at the thought

Before behind the man that had blown up

The one with the scar stood

He spoke to me

You yet live, for you cannot die…such is your wished reality…



I screamed in protest!!!

A finger now moved to the mans lips & his wide grinning teeth

Oh but it is…

You wished a world without war

A world with no more hate

A world that couldn’t exist

With humanity

Your wish has been granted

You will never die

You will slowly watch

As the world is gone

Soul by soul I will collect

Death after death you will see as my witness

Then when you are all alone

You will know the world you wished

Your world of peace

Such is your eternal reality

I felt a shock

A gnawing from deep within

Then I lost myself



I threw myself threw the window

Falling to the ground

Not a single bone broken

Nothing was wrong with me…


I continued to scream

Soon throwing myself

Into the headlights

Of a big rig truck!

The truck rolled

I was made direct contact

Still I stood

No blood

Not even a single speck!

I ran further to the nearest subway

Then threw myself in front

Still after it was all over

I stood,

The man appeared

A never ending smile upon his face

Accept it.

He said…

Then, with a finger to his lips

He soon turned

Vanishing before me

The next few months I tried every way

To kill myself each day

Eventually it became evident

As I saw others die

I’d gotten my wish

…This would be my eternity…




…I’d have my wish…

*Frantically begins crying*
