Beautiful Demise

They say we’re destroying the Earth,

But that’s a tale of lies.

We’re the ones at risk,

Human demise.

The Earth, the universe will always go on,

We’re the ones who’ll phase out with the dawn.

Looking forward to the day,

When Earth gives us the boot

Because we took her for granted,

Raided for loot.

Should we count all the ways

we’re destroying ourselves?

Common viruses getting stronger,

time only tells.

Penicillin failure, antibiotic abuse,

It’s like we never learn,

What’s the excuse?

While some remain incredulous,

It becomes more difficult to trust

That we’ll do the right thing

But even still will that bring

Peace of mind

Because either way,

We’ll go some time.

Whether the death of our sun

Or a meteor strike

We won’t be here forever

But like,

That’s okay because this universe is beautiful

We’re here to enjoy it, and in that way I’ll be dutiful.

Everything has its process

Things come and they go,

So let’s try to keep Earth comfortable

Until the end of the show.

Who knows what’s out there,

what’s now, or what’s next

Just look up to the sky

And try your best.
