Doom Lingers

Year is 3035 And here I lie in my capsule Waiting for the great End Or may be deep in my heart For an Alchemist To come and show me Some light Among this dark plight... The chemicals I used To make my Oxygen Is almost finished The pills I take for vitamins are proteins are also scarce It's been ages since I tasted the food For their is no tree or plant or herb outside No oxygen in the atmosphere The temperature inside is controlled But outside is hell warm From the glass windows I have been seeing fireworks For many weeks Fire and lawa would erupt from nowhere I know not if my friends In my neighbouring capsules Or alive or they starved to death For none of us can move our capsule As we are not left with much fule An army of strange creature is taking the world They drink fire which is erupting everywhere And eat garbage which too is in abundance The screaches of these fiery devils Make my ears bleed They are smashing our capsules for spot And putting everything in their fiery gut It's proving a final nail In the coffin of haman race And of the mother Earth Alas, It all started gradually With the cutting of the trees And letting poisonous gases dissolve in atmosphere Glaciers melted Oceans evaporated Atmosphere lost oxygen Earth became a hot desert Animals and birds... extinct While humans... confined to their units A lonely life in a small space Without love, without friends, without family It's everybody for it's self Earth is about to shatter Into pieces I am already seeing the cracks And the fireworks... blinding my sight Oh God, make it end soon For we have suffered way too much Or send some help And take me to a green Earth ( 4th May, 2021) For 'A Poem of Horror' poetry contest, Sponsored by Funom Makama

Hi Paghunda, That would really be a horrible situation if the earth ever devolves to such a state. Good luck to you in the contest. Liked the flow and easy to read...had to read to the end. - Gail
