All is Lost

Bone crackles

Spirits lift

When the flame drifts

All is lost

 

No silent tears

No silent fears

When the smoke clears

All is lost

 

The Earth keeps screaming

As it circles the sun

The ground is burning

All is lost

 

Who will save us?

When the time comes

When the fire rages

And all is lost

 

Water, please

Soothe the soil

Calm the flame

Or all is lost

 

Ashes to ashes

Dust to dust

When the wind blows

All is lost

This poem is about: 
Our world
