End of the World (Poem)

Updated on October 3, 2013

The End of the World

5 billion years have passed
Society is long since gone
The sun is now so vast
The Earth has its final dawn

Life has withered away
Leaving ruins in its wake
Memories fade in decay
A world that we forsake

Far away on another rock
Humans made their home
Still we avert death’s clock
As the universe we roam

We've continued to adapt
And look nothing like before
Our potential was untapped
Until we strived for more

Solar Life Cycle

      The universe seems to tare itself apart to construct itself into something entirely different. This infinite spiral will always keep me guessing. Cheers to an awesome poem!
