Sooner Than We Think

Sooner Than We Think

A Poem by Sarah Marie

To the heartbeat
In the earth’s core;
It grows fainter 
Every day
With every breath
That is taken. 
The lands 
Will soon shatter
And crack,
And the waters
Will overflow
Into the towns,
The masses
Running in fear.
Soon to be heard are
The sorrow
In their cries
As hell breaks loose
From a sunny sky;
Sunshine will be 
For all it will do
Is burn-
Burn the pain
To create agony,
And burn the earth
To create misery. 
The world will be
Too weak 
To withstand much more;
Soon it will fall
And become dust
At the sounding crack
Of a lightning storm. 
Soon it will be too late,
And nothing more
Will be left to do.

This sounds a lot like a poem I wrote once. 'Cept I thought there was still one thing to do: Love.
It's never too late to give love.

I like the way you structured this piece, Sarah. And I'm always personally affected when I see other people atleast think about things like this. (Will there be an apocolypse? I dunno. But if there is...)

Thanks for sharing

First, and only thought, that came to mind after reading this was. Apocolypse. And then many thoughts came after this of course, so I guess I lied when I said that it was my only thought.
This poem was Enchanting, thrilling and just beautiful.
It send a pretty clear message. I guess it would alos involve us changing the world for the better. Some things we need to fix, otherwise it will be too late and we'll never be able to fix it or change it, because it will be too late.
This is beautiful. Great job, like always Sarah.
