The rain did not fall anymore on earth
nor the sun shine brightly
no birds sang or fish swam in the water
mostly dead like the population
hard to breath in choking polluted air
laying with that pleading stare!
On the plains only the strong survived
the wind never stopped
sunken wells still had drinkable water
animal life to consume
a lone man wife and child by his side
from mutants had to hide!
The radiation levels were rapidly increasing
nobody was told of the leaks
into the many vast oceans and atmosphere
from nuclear power stations
built for the energy needs claimed it was safe
in them the public had too much faith!
Through all the horrors and misery imposed
on an unsuspecting people
somehow this family had stayed together
loving living a simple life
had made them overseer so much despair
as into oblivion did stare!
As if a greater power was protecting them
with death spread all around
somehow they thrived in the harsh climate
soon a second child was born
a daughter entered their small magical clan
as if by a preordained plan!
Was this a miracle and new beginning?
