They live in different enclosures,
called countries and nation.
They live in different ways,
called culture and religion.

Their root is same,
but they are different.
Some are very aggressive,
some are extra tolerant.

They are inventing things,
and making weapons.
They are progressing,
but only to kill humans.

They fear the nature,
for its calamities.
They fear the nature,
for its adversaries.

They believe that one day,
apocalypse will happen.
Which will doom the universe,
under its sharp pangs.

I believe otherwise,
as they will doom to their core.
By a self created apocalypse,
much much much before.

Anurag, thanks for visiting. Appreciate.

Very nicely depicted the harsh reality of the ongoing perilous environment which is created by the truly said ‘They’, a word which is quite depictable.

Hope to have a sustainable environment in future rather than walking apocalyptic.

Sangita, thanks for your visit snd supporting view on the theme of the article. Appreciate.

Very nice! Totally relevant in current times of intolerance and homophobia - we just need to be kinder to everyone. Vasudhaiv kutumbakam is a good thought of the olden times

Bill, thanks for visiting and yes though the danger is looming on our heads we can do our little bit to mitigate that in our own noble ways. I agree with your nice thoughts.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 18, 2020:

We seem, at times, to be determined to self-destruct as a civilization. It saddens me, but I also see so much good in our community. All I can do is be a messenger of love and hope others will be too.

A very nice depiction of a manmade apocalyptic prediction. Good use of words and rhythm as well. I enjoyed the read.

This is an interesting commentary on the nature of man and nations and our combined responsibility for looking after the world we live in.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 12, 2020:

"Self-Created Apocalypse." You made me think. Think of how to avoid it, based on how your poem described it. Good poetry.

I certainly hope all the aggressors doom themselves so the rest of us can live together in peace.
