As I look out the window and see the clouds of smoke
People are leaving their house,

With their face drained of hope

Close by I see people crying,
In the distance I hear people screaming

The worst is happening,
Only this time we’re not dreaming

The faithful are gathering,
Holding hands and praying

The tainted are bargaining,
Taking anything that can be taken

The weak are jumping off buildings,
Leaving blood on the pavement

Large scale of suicides
Whether by knife, gun, or hanging

It’s anarchy out there
And it has only begun

I’m damned to the flames
Because my sins can’t be undone
This poem requested by :iconadmirer4022: !

I would've posted this earlier, but I was moving to the states.
So, forgive me a took longer than expected. 

This is what came to mind when I thought of the end of the world.

Hope I didn't let you down!

Negative poetry is so much easier to do, wouldn't you agree?

Sadly, yes.
That's why I try to stay away from it.

I embrace it. Saddness is just as important to have as joy. If we didnt have sorrow, how would we know what happiness is?

Well for me, I prefer to stay away from it.
Sadness serves no purpose for me.

I just have... Kind of a lot of homework now.
But, it's all fine! 
Thanks for your concern!

When I feel exceptionally depressed (as I am now), I see your poem matching the current state of the world. In some sense, anyways...
