If the world were to crash and burn,
And all life ceased to exist.
What would be my biggest concern?
What one thing, I could not resist?
With not a caring soul or a comforting sound
Stranded, was I, until rescue appeared –
Population scarcely abound
That is the single thing, I truly feared.
As the sky is falling rapidly
Then the Earth cries in desolation
All around me, anarchy,
The fresh setting for my accommodations
I cradle my thoughts
With one true apprehension
Humanity – it rots,
And I drown in isolation.
That’s what I would crave
From the weak and the useless
To the subtle and brave.
The inevitable would appear
Right before my weary eyes
Conditions utterly severe
“Just end it all” – I’d advise.
However, you cannot simply relinquish
Striving is an absolute must
It truly is absolute anguish
But this action you must trust.
I would have to recover
Forget the panic within
I would have to discover
A world differ from it once has been.
Many would fear death, possession, and all lost hope.
My true fear is irreplaceable.
Humanity would be the one thing.
The one thing I’d miss most.
