The End

What if the world were to end in nine days
When a fragment of the moon collides with the Earth?

What if the world were to end in eight days
When our destruction is complete, will it lead to rebirth?

What if the world were to end in seven days
Would today then be Sabbath, our final day of rest?

What if the world were to end in six days
Would it bring out the worst in us or force us be our best?

What if the world were to end in five days
Would health and beauty, fame and fortune mean anything?

What if the world were to end in four days
Would morning still be joyous, what pleasure would evening bring?

What if the world were to end in three days
Would we feel anxiety, sadness, panic or just plain relief?

What if the world were to end in two days
Would skeptics turn believers, and the faithful lose belief?

What if the world were to end tomorrow
How would we say goodbye to our loved ones, to our friends?

What if the world were to end today
Would our love still abide, when all life as we know it ends?
