the end

~Jacques J.P. Hanekom

I've heard of the end - be it
by flood or fire,
or blood in war-

from what I've tasted of desire
it seems to kindle the fire,
while my knowledge of war
recollects images of gore;

I have felt enough of hate
fueling my destructive heart
to know that it is also great-

this will tear us apart.
