Planet Earth "As Described by The Traveler"

There are many peoples and planets 
Throughout the vast universe
Though during my travels I haven’t seen any
That can compare to the peoples of earth
It amazes me to see an entire planet of beings
With intelligence such as theirs that are so
Petty, so unbelieving, and so filled with hate
It’s as if they don’t care and are completely unaware
Of the judgment that they will one day have to face 
No matter if they believe that they’ll have to or not
Jesus Christ will one day - return to this earth
To deal successfully with - the entire human race
I wonder how a beautiful blue world such as this planet
Harbors such sin, so much hate, and the people so cruel
Instead of being brotherly, loving and helping one another
They appear to be greedy, selfish, and unbelieving fools
Mankind all, comes from one single place
No matter the planet, no matter the race
Created in the Father’s own awesome image - alas
The peoples of earth are in serious peril of being erased  
I wonder why they cannot just get alone
When the entire planet belongs to everyone
I wonder why one group feels like they want to own it all
When surely they have to know that this will be man’s downfall
From the moment beings are born into this world living
To be here only for a moment that is indeed fleeting
By God’s unconditional love, His mercy and His grace 
To enjoy but a second the magnificent beauty of the human race
As I travel through this planet known as earth looking at 
Its awesome shores, its green forests, and its beautiful blue skies
I, “the traveler” pass by quietly and without any interference
For mankind alone has made come to pass - its own - deserving demise!
