Endings

all things end…
universes
galaxies
stars
worlds
countries
marriages
friendships
life…

nothing is static…
always changing
evolving
mutating
splitting
birthing
gendering
for better
or worse…

tear it down…
with wars
pollution
suppression
propaganda
cancel-culture
nihilism
bigotry
all colors…

nothing left but…
GMOs
poisoned land
defiled oceans
rotting cities
false outrage
trigger warnings
unschooled children
melting snowflakes

until…
no one can breath
eat healthily
drink clean water
walk unafraid
speak unafraid
pray unafraid…
our poor world
is on life support…
