If life as we know it ended today, would you fall to your knees and begin to pray?

Or try and make amends for sins of before, and hope it will lead you to heavens door.

Or would you act like you don't want to know, and hope it's all just a show?

Would you hold your love ones tight, or do something crazy on the last night?

But if it's going to end today, do you even have time to say,

Sorry for all your wrongs, or just tell them what you thought all along.

Even the ones who believed it was true, will be shocked that it actually came through.

So in the end there's not much to say, it's the end of the world.

Have a nice day.
Written for :iconwritingmadefun: "what if the world ended today?" Competition

So if you discovered it was going to be the last day, what would you do?

Personally, I really doubt this whole 2012 stuff, for the main fact of it is that there is so many opinions and theories on it, and that whole stuff that went on before in may was it? I just remember being in English class and one guy saying "end of the world today" "oh really" said another "cool" and that was it. I don't think many take it too seriously, but it is a scary thought that many put to Hollywood for movie ideas but no one thinks its gonna happen anytime soon. Also I really don't like the whole thought behind it, why would you want it to end, I know I don't theres so much I want to do and it's ending in December four months before my birthday, so I won't get to drive, no! If it ends I'll be pretty pissed. Lol

It's a good topic for poetry though, and it got my creative juices flowing after having nothing going on up there, so thanks for that.
Also I guess the whole end of the world thing inspired All Time Low new album which I actually like.

So yeah good topic, hope it's not really gonna happen though.

If the world was going to end I would sit in a corner and wait it out. Cause honestly if I tried to do anything stupid the world would be like NOPE not ending today.

The world is cruel ;)

Well, technically everything we know now doesn't count by the time you read this second now. The world as we know it is constantly changing and thus, constantly ending...

hmmm if the world were to end most people say that they would do certain crazy things or whatever (me included) but with something like that you never really know until it happens which kinda sucks, it's likely that we would find a part of ourselves we didn't know existed in the final moments of desperation and go nuts (but not in a good way).

by the way really loved the poem an excellent piece of literature my friend 10/10 on this one...favourite i think.

It is hard to think of what to do in a situation like that, and it's true that you couldn't actually say what your are going to do unless you are facing it.
Yes a crazy part of us would arise and it would cause more problems than it's worth.

Thank you very much it means a lot! Thank you for the lovely comment too!

Well... if happens... it could happen before I get old, which will be official in Decemberg (my birthday is before the end of the world).

Yes, I don't believe the end either... but this is brilliant poem.
Everytime I think about the question, my reaction is that the conversation you transcribed.
I also think about the things you wrote... and never come to any conclusion.
Probably if I could to choose my end, I'd chose it happened while I was asleep.

Very, very good.
Everything I said what chit-chat and I am aware of it, it's just... I really miss words to explain my reaction.
I think your talent has been developing and more and more, and I've already told once and twice, that I am happy I have found your gallery, and it's always a pleasure and a honour to read from you.

Do you know what?
I do hope the end of the world is not going to happen (at least not now), I need time, cuz when I grow up, I want to be like you.

Allagash, my dear and wonderful friend, I hope you know how much your comments mean to me.

I'm really glad you liked it, I really liked the topic to write about, not really it itself, its a horrible thought for there is so much I want to do, and that would just get in the way.

I'm not completely sure on what the whole theory is about the whole way the world is to end, something about super volcanoes is something I heard on the grape vine but I'm not 100% sure. I never watched 2012, and I don't intend too. lol

anyways Thank you again, and I so happy that you think that, but I like you the way you are and your writing is much much more advanced and just generally better than mine, but again thank you, it really brighten my day.

I disagree, really.
Your writing has so much personality, it has life, it's young, full of attitude, sensibility, a good twist of humour...
I know that you have one million reasons for me to like you as a person, you're a lovely girl, and a good friend.
But I really admire you as a writer, regardless all that.
I can say without thinking twice that you are among my favourite writers. Dave too.
I have the luck of knowing some of my favourite writers, and your friendship is really important be sure of it... but I want to make clear that I am not it to please you...
I like Shakespeare, Robert Burns, Charles Baudelaire, Augusto dos Anjos and...
Niamh Larkin.

AWWW! I'm a bit shocked on how to reply, that's one of the nicest things I've read ever!
I know I've said it before, but I still get shocked when I get complemented I don't think until I started on dA that I was actually really creative with my writing, but even more I was much more happier, I'm able to vent my thoughts and feelings and I've met so many wonderful people, like yourself, that I can't imagine not being in my life.

No worries, I don't write expecting any answer. I just tell you because think you should know.
I've even tweeted (or twitted? not sure) it, for you to see I feel proud of reading from you and having you as a friend.
