End of Time

End of Time

I am facing the end of time
            And I don’t know what to do.

A decision must be made
            Is being forced upon me

But it is overwhelming; chose wrong
And the world will stop spinning,

Wait – and the world shakes and shudders
            Purges and heaves;

A tsunami in the South Pacific,
            An earthquake in Pakistan.

Why do I hesitate?
            It will only cost me losing faith with you.

I must leave and go;
Be where the butterfly will brush against time.

That spot of fate where the simple
            Determines the destiny of the universe.
