Judgment Day

The sky was pitch black a few minutes ago,

 

But now it was pierced by splashes of yellow light,

 

The splashes almost looked like fireworks,

 

Yet I knew what they really were,

 

They weren’t the signs of celebration,

 

They were a harbinger of death,

 

 

Each one was a meteor, visible from thousands of miles out,

 

By the time they reached Earth’s atmosphere they would block out the sky,

 

I had been warned this moment would come,

 

I did not heed the warning,

 

 

I thought I was going insane,

 

Hearing a voice in my head,

 

It called itself God,

 

It said that it wanted to punish Earth for its sins,

 

Hate, Narcissism, Greed, War

 

It also said I had the chance to save myself and the planet

 

I never answered, I only tried to shut the voice out,

 

 

As the meteors came closer,

 

I heard the voice in my head again,

 

“Do you want to save yourself and your people?”
