One World ....No People .....

Perhaps it's just my imagination but what
would survival truly entail
If for whatever reasoning the human race
were in danger ....had even come to fail

You and I were the only two left
empty streets and empty cities abound
Empty airports.....empty schools
silent and empty playgrounds

From what solemn beginning could
we together succeed
Would we reinvent war ....famine ...hate
would we turn inward to greed

An omega man......all our realities
lying shattered
What of the needs of a woman
chosing no longer mattered

Could we recreate love into
a dream only imagined today
What about families......what part would
our gendre play

I wonder..... will there one day not be
any sign that is mans
No cities .....no factories.....no lost souls
just last stands

Just an empty although perfect haven
an eden where we'd begin a dance
Just a sunlit place of beauty....a heaven
for new creation ....a second chance

Sadly we had a second chance through the flood and Noah. We didn't use it wisely and gave into selfishness instead of love. Your poem offers the possibility of a new start and one day it will come true. Love and truth always prevails and we have the promise of God Himself. Thanks for this lovely inspiration.

Glad I read this poem before going to sleep. As I read the words I felt a longing for love and renewal among mankind. You write from your heart and soul this is why your words shine!

We could reinvent, recreate the perfect world, given that the two people left are not greedy or evil.

ahorseback...should I pick the apple from the tree, if so would you take a bite? Or should we not take that road again.

Marellen, I , my dear have always been the one to do that which I shouldn't , I could never sit beside a woman and watch her eat the whole apple by herself! , or maybe I could ? Just to sit there .LOL :-}

I wish it won't need 2 only to tango

I wish we can have half the world to turning the face of the world

Because if only 'you' and 'me'

It will become very painful beginning

Heart breaking tragedy to be imagine

This beautiful poem of yours

Thought provoking words, Dad

A wonderful reminder

Thank you ^^

Freya , It is those just like you that are able to save this world , from itself. I am just a writer but you rebuild humanity , don't ever forget that! Where would families be without angels on earth like you, Are there guardian angels in the Koran?....Big Big hug.

Unfortunately, man is doomed to make the same errs. Call me a pessimist if you would like, but the best predictor of future is past actions with man. I do believe we would like to think we would do different, maybe have the best intentions but same outcome.

Except for one thing! An Intervention by God to cut open the heart of each man and remove the evil parts forever. To make each heart transparently accountable to all others. Love you sweety!
