A poem that was never written

Un poème, jamais écrit.
شعری که هرگز نوشته نشد
Стихотворение, никогда не написанное

Once upon a time..
Planet Earth was thriving with life.
Civilization they called humans.
Reached the edges of knowledge
Created art, technology and science
Wrote books of all kinds
Pierced the skies and landed on the moon
Circled Jupiter, recorded bursts
From the Sun.
Argued with philosophy
And wrote beautiful poetry.
But they never got mature enough
To value knowledge over ignorence
Reality over fiction, fantasy or mythology
And reason over non sense
They lived in an illusion
Looking for proofs in hallucinations.
What they called twenty first century
Made it to be their last
Some of them even looked forward
To destruction, to rupure
So a man from the sky, can come and save them.
They killed each other
Destroyed the planet
made it unhabitable to life.
Just because they wanted myths to win
And truth to get buried
Under the noise of lies
Under the ashes of ego
And the falsehood.
