THIS IS NOT THE END
The plantations that were green and rich With vegetation Have dried up and been left fallow The clean clear rivers that once ran deep Have now become polluted And shallow The birds no longer perch and sing here For this barren land would only echo their loneliness The air has become toxic and unclean So the trees are unable to breath Too weak in their bonyness The high rocky mountains That once harboured life Only serve now as tombs to harbour decease While the seemingly tormented and abandoned Desolate land beneath them Seems to beckon for release The vultures gather here no more For they too would die and wither away In this deserted place of calm unrest Nothing can live here, so nothing stays here Nothing can graze here So nothing ever comes here for fear of death For as the season changes The cold harsh windiness blows its dead into scattered bones And then Into nothingness Then comes the sun again That once made high stench Of rotting flesh Now boldly returning To claim that which is left New life will come here to this land Again and again And die here Naive to the nature of its trend Only few will live long enough to move on And to see That this Is not the end
