Ours will be the generation that will have the toughest battles to face. We will face the wrath of Mother Earth for all the exploitation that she endured through the ages. We will face a world occupied by broken souls and bloody lands as an aftermath of the wars that're raging around us now. We will be the generation that is put to trial for all the misery that our predecessors plunged our world in. The children born out of war stricken lands will grow with guns in their hands and who knows how many murders they'll grow up to commit, since they've seen nothing but blood all through their childhood. Who knows how many continents will perish, once this Earth starts giving us back the hell that we've put it through, these many centuries. Hospitals would be overrun by psychiatrists and counselors because mental health problems will become the forerunner among all other bodily problems of the world. Human race might be overtaken by machines and a huge sum of the population could die of starvation because of the high rates of unemployment.
Who will account for all the bodies of men on the streets if every woman was allowed to carry a gun with her for safety?What if we lived everyday in the fear of death because we had chosen to show our children only terrorism and violence? What if we need a huge revolution to relearn all the ways that we've been taught all these years? Who will teach us that finding a job or settling down in a marriage is not the ultimate purpose in life? Where will go run to save our lives when the earth goes up in flames? Flames that we sparked the matchstick for. Flames that will ravage us because we sat and watched while half the world suffered. Flames that will engulf us because we were taught to care for only our needs when a huge proportion of humankind died of starvation and poverty.
What if we never had a chance to explain how sorry we are when the world splits in two to engulf us? Who will tell Mother Earth how much we apologized when she cleansed out our race to keep her other species alive? When will we realize that saving up money or gold will do nothing in helping our future generation survive? Who will help us when we perish from the destruction of both humans and nature alike?
I don't know if we'll live to hand over this world in all its glory to our successors but I do know that we will not survive to see the next three decades if we keep going down the same path that we selfishly walked all these years.
