A SICKENED EARTH
There was a violent explosion,
the earth began to quake and shiver.
Fire raged across the earth,
the core erupted,
It sucked the vital life from the surface.
Gases released putrid, unearthly smells,
the chaos of time searching for its kill.
A red mist formed like a blanket,
across the vast expanse of sky,
a glow that made it seem like hell.
The brutish beast enveloping the earth,
the waters turning to sludge,
dirty sediment congealing,
like an oily liquid,
to kill all of life.
And yet from all this chaos came new life,
a life that could resist antagonism,
this state of hostile conflict.
Though the old life had died,
so a new life was created.
