Final Hour

By Hufsa Sarwar

When will all this weariness end?
When will we be set free?
When will the world realise
That none of this is necessary?
The truth of the ages
Lost in between
I wonder if anyone knows
That it’s right in front of them
Waiting to be seen.

The world is plunged into darkness
All hope has been lost
Death is impatient
Where has our saviour gone?

Death approaches
The clock is ticking faster
Each minute hand turning swiftly
Drawing out the innocent childrens’ laughter

The playground falls silent
As the children turn and see
Their fate walking towards them
Almost imperceptibly.
