I Am the End of the World

I am the end of the world.

I am the earth made barren

and robbed of utility.

I am scorched beyond fertility.

 

I am the craters in the earth on

once-inhabited land,

ever-deepening from nuclear attacks,

sustained long after the dead became dust.

 

I am the great flood.

I drown all hope of life and

refuse to gather wood for the ark.

 

I am eternal dark.

 

I am the end of the world.
