The End of the World

a poem by Matt Brace

We live in a world,
a beautiful world.
The kind of world that we don’t want to destroy.
The kind of world that might now always be here.
We never know what is going to happen to the world.
We never know when the end is coming.
The end of the world is near?
Who’s saying that?
The kind of people who don’t thank the world for all of its gifts.
The kind of people who don’t like the world for who it is.
The world is a very good place to live,
The world is a very good place to love,
The world is the best place in the world.
Why would anyone predict the end of the world?
