Personal Armageddon

There were signs of the end times
But I denied and ignored them
Fighting the destined end 
I hoped till the very last despairing moment
Even as the sun was growing dark

Rationality leaving 
Soul departing
Yet I tried to resist the irresistible 
Resistance was futile
Yet seemed my duty
But at the ordained time the world was consumed
Death swallowed life
Life swallowed death
Mystery and mourning
The burning consumption of one world and the beginning birth cry of another.
I should have seen the signs of the time
but only after all is lost does one see.
Out of the ashes we gain insight
At a price, at a price
Personal Armageddon 
The end of my world
