Silently!

Silently the danger swiftly approached

gathered speed as it careered onward

many eyes through telescopes observed

could see the object coming this way

on earth humans continued their folly

disbelieving of what could soon occur

others searched for provisions to hoard

merciless violence then soured!

 

Too many predictions were unfounded

so few thought it would ever be

nothing would change greed still ruled

there could be nowhere for us to flee

darkness despair the disbelief grew

death and horror the only view!

 

No Fresh air sun or sweet singing birds

happy children innocently playing

certain a meteorite was going to collide

ending in terror mankind’s very existence

written its said as an ancient prophecy

as it hurled closer to the earths surface

the few hid in deep secure habitation

no room for most of the population!

 

By a miracle or very poor calculations

it passed by earth at close proximity

a warning how fragile the balance of life

hurtling onward in spaces vast highway

order restored the chaos forgotten

mankind carried on just as rotten!

 

Another chance given for humans to repent

or short reprieve from an inevitable event!

Choking!

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?
