This is the last in my series. I hope you enjoyed reading these poems.

If you missed any, the links are below (in order).

DESTINATION EARTH

WELCOME TO EARTH

HUNTED

ANIMALS

TAKEN FOR A RIDE

OVERKILL

BETRAYED

STARTING OVER

LIFE ON EARTH

MAKING IT WORK

REVENGE

WE CREATED A MONSTER


 

Aliens living peacefully as human

Were forced out of their homes

War was declared

It was us against them

The media said they would destroy Earth

In the end, we did that ourselves

Rockets were fired

Bombs were dropped

Explosions rippled across the world

We killed millions of our own

To defeat a few hundred aliens

Who were never a threat to start with

Lila, in her rage killed

Nearly everyone else

Their fear of her and others

From other planets

Sparked violence

By then Lila was only too happy

To retaliate in kind

When she set off to travel

Through time and space

Her soul was pure

Now it’s tainted with blood

On her hands, soaking though

Right down to her core

Becoming the most feared creature

Among us, the last few survivors

We were never the ones

To break her heart, record her humiliation

Destroy her life or kill the ones she loved

But we were never the ones to speak up

One thought on “End times (poem)

  1. I was hoping for that “Doctor Who” style happy ending for our alien heroin, but bloodied, tainted, humiliated, heart-broken will have to do…. loved your serial story all the way through….
