Kill Or Be Killed

And destruction complimented the stench of hunger
And lack of survival.

Mysterious fires burned under pressure
As a lonely cloud of companionless mist loomed overhead.

In this desperate cactus land,
A spread of barren landscape before me,
Am unable to shed a tear for it; dry as bone.

Life itself has come to a standstill.
When every ounce of energy has been drained by the human race
It makes you stop
And wonder
What urges you on to live another day?
