Armageddon

With the apocalypse being unleashed
What is it that you had wished?
Eden is not what you'll see
Serenity? Let it be!

What is it that your heart desires?
What is it your soul aspires?
Harmony? I fathom not!
Humanity? Let it rot!

But amidst the darkness, amidst the pain,
Hope persists; its not in vain,
And somewhere, in that breeding ground,
A rose has sprouted, and love is found.

With bloodshed and turmoil everywhere
Would you be kind, would you care?
would you be brave enough to dare
to speak against the orthodox?
Else the wrath of it shall spare you not!
So Beware! If you've opened the Pandora's box!

When the world comes to an end, nobody is going to be spared. While people continue to act carelessly and selfishly, they forget that they too shall suffer as an aftermath of their own reckless actions. The end may be nearing but we can still make a change. It's never too late to hope and to love.

Nicely written. Rotting humanity and its sombre mood has been captured very well. I like the gleam of hope that you have conveyed within the muck of insensitivity of people.

"I'm going to live life, experience love, give love, adventure to my heart's content until one day my time comes to an end and I receive that answer as to what awaits." - Loved your recipe of living life to the fullest, Kyler. Whether you believe in destiny or not, it is important that we make the best out of whatever comes our way and deal with it positively. Thank you for your opinion and appreciation. You did make me think from a different angle. Stay blessed! And do say hi to your son. :)

Thank you olu for your opinion. Human race is certainly heading that way unless we can control this mess on time but we are still hopeful. Stay blessed and stay safe!

There must be darkness at the end of time and fear in our thoughts..but Humanity, love, deeds may justify that. ....

Hope persist.....

Wonderful poem..

Humanity has a strong desire to live however history tells that civilization and the nature of man changes with time.Armageddon who says its not now upon us

Kyler J Falk from Corona, CA on April 05, 2020:

I don't believe in the end of time, time is a concept, a measurement, but I do believe in the end of humanity. I believe that humanity has the capacity and will to strive onward, and the will is born of its greed. That greed breeds hate, and that hate breeds war. On will go the cycle, but hopefully the fear of losing all this progress keeps everything in check.

I'm going to live life, experience love, give love, adventure to my heart's content until one day my time comes to an end and I receive that answer as to what awaits. My guess is that it is darkness, nothingness, I will be gone and my legacy left behind is all that will remain of me.

A wonderful poem, despite its darkness.
