Waiting

Let me tell you a story ... Can you imagine a world with no wars anywhere, imagine no global warming and no weather disasters; or imagine oceans free of garbage killing fish and creatures, or somehow stopping the icebergs from melting ! Imagine no more viruses that kill and spread all over the world, can you imagine the end of our world, I can, and soon; I think regarding the present war led by an evil powerful man, the crushing of a peaceful country is just a beginning ! Imagine every country in the world fighting together, but there will always be a hesitation and a fear of WW3; I now fear viruses that kills- then another and another oh, the world that I knew as a child has changed forever ! The new world order could bring us into WW3, and living in the capital of Canada makes my city a target; this is where the Prime Minister lives and where Parliament sits, can you imagine losing all the buildings we treasure ! Maybe food prices will be so high I will not be able to afford, and perhaps I will not be able to pay my rent that is getting higher; so, I wait, wait for WW3- wait for a virus to kill me, wait ... wait for the end of life as I know it, just wait for the end to come !

"The new world order could bring us into WW3" - Thenceforth, we will, like ancient humans, fight with bows and arrows! Beautiful. Congratulations!

Definitely the world is going backwards. This should do well in his contest, Dear heart. (I like how you started it the way we should start our narratives for you)

Robert, thank you for the compliment, I never imagined that I would have to worry about WW3, seems the world is going backwards instead of forwards, is peace just an illusion ~Constance
