The Day We Left The Earth - Poem by Harshvardhan Ramachandran

Do you remember the day we left earth?
Where all we had was without worth
Life was broken
War had erupted
Our resources dwindled to obscurity
We lived with insecurity
Nature had been destroyed by man
And in her final moments she annihilated us
Her torturers for millennia
Where came this end?

The horrors of what had occurred
Were nothing compared to what was to come
Despite our knowledge of the universe
We ignored what we lived on
Ignored the power of the unstoppable
And now we paid
Yes, we did pay

Do you remember the day we left earth?
Leaving all behind to rot
Kept our species' last few relics
Launched them into space
From genius creations and discoveries
To memories and works of the masters
Books on our kind and evolution
Stories of Earths greatest champions
Maybe one day someone would find
The brightest parts of a dead world
The darkest night had begun.

Humanity was in utter darkness
We were now powerless
Escaping our dead old world
In hordes of giant ships
Fleeing were the ones with foresight
With no end in sight
I guess in space, no one could hear us
But most importantly
No one could save us......

Very few hours ago
We talked over dinner tables
A dictator in the west
The rise of the east
Poverty and death in the south
And extreme uncertainty in the north
Everything was moot and pointless
It was now the death of the Human race

Do you remember the day we left earth?
How we ran from Armageddon
Hell had descended
There were no devils and no angels
No Satan or God
Just nature
Who had initiated a self-destruct
And taken down all of humanity with her
Into the forever pit of nothingness
A reply to what we did to other species among us
Do you remember how the Earth Cracked?
The oceans roared and tore the plains
We looked at each other and knew
Without looking back
Without time to lose
There were 8 Billion of us
Now only 13 Thousand
The rest engulfed in the abyss
Of the fiery pit of our creation

Do you remember the day we left earth?
I looked at you and said
Will it all begin again?
And you, for the first time
Were silent in tears.
