Desolate Lands

A poem about a vision of a coming desolation of lands

By Danwil ReyesPublished 5 months ago 1 min read

The land was once a paradise

Full of life and joy

But now it lies in ruin

A desolate and empty void

The people's wicked ways

Brought about this fate

Their greed and selfishness

Did seal their earthly fate

The earth is but a shell

Of what it once was

The animals have fled

No longer here to fuss

The trees are bare and lifeless

The rivers run dry

The skies are grey and clouded

No longer do they sigh

The land was once so vibrant

But now it's dark and cold

A victim of man's wickedness

Forever to remain old

But perhaps one day

The land will heal

And the people will learn

To love and feel

Forgiveness for the earth

They must find

Only then can it be reborn

And hope for mankind.
