The Earth Trembled

The earth trembled and all felt fear, Some murmured a prayer. Most ran out. oft tumbling the stair. Faithless led to despair. Apathy led to bars, Others caused some crashed cars, Most escaped to watch stars. Sin dissembled. The earth trembled. 15 September 2021 Quietus

You have created a vivid portrayal of what judgement day might be like, Victor. The picture with the angry red skies makes a good companion to this verse. Fine writing! Good luck in the contest. Hugs.

Some horrible times are coming upon the earth up to the rapture of the church then after the rapture it will get much worse and the Antichrist takes control. I see everyday more and more signs that it is going to happen. It says in the Bible that there is going to be an earthquake that is going to shake the whole earth. Can you imagine what that is going to be like, I can't. Thanks for your visit to my page. Sara

This time is coming, perhaps not in our time, but in the time of a few more generations, stunning poem and great imagery, your wording is flawless. Best wishes, because that day is terrifying.

When that time comes many will turn to God asking forgiveness but it will be too late, they've had their reward. Tom
