Within the ruins


Dead ivy hangs from broken windows

Weeds are growing everywhere,

Rubble scattered here and there,

This was once s place called home

A place where we loved and shared,

But things they got the better of us,

We wanted and sought so much more,

This home was destroyed like all homes were

Through excess, greed, violence and war,

So now how home is broken down

Our home like all homes are in ruins,

And despite the warning signs

Mankind just kept doing what it loved doing,

Chasing dreams of money and greed

And thriving through exploitation,

We bucked nature and lived arrogantly

And went headlong against creation.
