World's End


Nothing could stop the world from ending,
Not for me, not for you, not for anyone.
Cowards control the strong,
False confidence rules us all,

Nothing could stop the world from ending,
Nothing will be our downfall,
Nothing will be the binding traction,
Nothing will save us all,

No one could stop the world from ending,
Look around, it's already begun,
Sing your prayers, your last minute love songs,
Say goodbye to everything you knew,
Say goodbye to everyone you love,

I sat and watched while it all burned,
Nothing could be done.
Everything is gone.

Nothing could stop the world from ending,
We've tried but it's all gone,
Stolen by those we thought we loved.

Ignore the world's ending,
We've lost despite it all.
Fear controls the weak,
Love will make us strong,

Maybe we can stop the world from ending,
For me, for you, for everyone.
Everything is going to change,
No one will be alone,
Not anymore and not for long.

I tried to stop the world from ending,
And all the world did was fall apart.


This poem, albeit a shorter version of it, will be published in a book called Futures.
