A single poem on the state of the world.

World on Fire

I realise I am not the girl you met before

Life is cruel to those who defy its rules

I tried to fit in - to be normal

But to do so requires sanity

And sanity evades me

When left alone for a length of time

Good becomes tainted

And Evil claims the crown

I do believe the world will burn

When it becomes aware of its doings

Just as I have

Out of pure admonishment

It will take a match to its skin

All that remains is ashes and a guilty conscience

Which - in turn - will rot away

Leaving behind only memories

And could-have-beens.

Thank you for reading!
