Hello people! What to say? I'm a Christian girl. I like to write. I write tons of poetry, some short stories, and other things.
God bless you!

This is the Way the World Ends.

With desperate prayers
And trembling hands,
This is the way the world ends.

See the children huddled
Against their mothers' shaking sides,
See how they sit stock-still,
Eyes wide in shock and terror

With war cries
And bloody fields,
This is the way the world ends. 

Look to the battlegrounds,
Look to the trenches.
Invisible to our eyes, 
Angels cradle their still bodies

With bowed heads
And arms carrying the dead,
This is the way the world ends.

And listen
Listen.
Hear their sobs of hopelessness,
Hear the screams of anguish

For with heavy hearts
And dead friends
They finally see
This is the day the world ends.
