Annihilation


No more rhythm, no more rhyme
Out of step and out of time
The planets in their orbits falter
Our destiny we fail to alter
Moving on towards the end
Still we do not comprehend
That through the earth`s contamination
We`ll set our own extermination

No more hope and no more light
Through the darkness of the night
The sun in all her glory waning
The stars as burnt-out beacons fading
On and further on we go
Dark and darker yet to grow
The pathway to obliteration
And then complete annihilation

    Great poem. Certainly reflects the nihilism I feel constantly in my own consciousness and I see unstoppably marching into all of man as a social being. The path towards annihilation seems set and inescapable now. (Report) Reply

    I still have hope! Someday there will be born into this world a saviour, whom all nations will follow and he will show us the way. Sure it will not be in my lifetime but it will be sometime in the future, maybe even after the humans almost destroy the earth, but you can believe he will come... :) (Report) Reply

    A well written and very truthful account of our current conditions, humans have indeed become the earth's parasite..... (Report) Reply

    Like we're on a runaway train. We know where we're headed, but it's almost impossible to control.
    Clear and chilling. (Report) Reply

    A well written verse of so bleak a view, let's hope it's essence we don't eschew, while in contemplation I have a brew and try to sort the situation. Time to think of our impending annihilation while all the nihilists are on vacation, as they won't mind our inconsideration and we can think without the added aggravation. A provocative and finely write to motivate even entrenched procrastinators alright. (Report) Reply
