    The fire may not burn the world nor the ice
    but it is the man who holds greed of desire
    and power of hate to the carry annihilation ahead.wonderful write.

    The world does not end in Fire my Son...nor does it end in Ice.
    It ends with a decision of fools my Lad...so before you say, Yes! think twice!
    For how the world ends my Son...has been proven over and over in Life.
    The Man no longer exists my Lad...the moment he takes a Wife!

    The world, my friends, it seems to me
    will end by our stupidity.
    However arrogant, I think
    That we not first would go extinct.

    Beautiful poem! We do tend to destroy ourselves and our world by the way of trying to satisfy excessive desires or through hatred. (Report) Reply
