The End

When the world ends,

When it comes to a halt.

Who will be there,

To sort it all out?


The tides are turning.

We're losing sight,

Of what is around us,

What isn't alright.


Predators roaming,

Swift as night.

Searching for prey,

With all their might.


We forget who's out there,

Unable to comprehend,

What life would be like,

If it came to an end.

Another World

In another world,

Up is down and left is right.

In another world,

What is wrong is right.


To get the chance

To see what life holds

In another dimension,

To leave a world so cold.

Most would do it.

Most would accept.

To try something new,

This one single chance.


But we'd lose sight of ourselves,

Of our life and our being.

We'd forget what we love,

What we hate and our feelings.


We'd gave it all up,

For a chance to explore

A world so different

We'd fall for the lure.

Passing Time

Passing Time

60, 59, 58, 57,

The clock ticks by,

52, 51, 50, 49,

Stealing each moment,

45, 44, 43, 42,

Reminisces only remain,

38, 37, 36, 35,

We wish for it to stop,

28, 27, 26, 25,

So we can fix mistakes,

19, 18, 17, 16,

We have tried to be patient,

9, 8, 7, 6,

But we're left with nothing.
