The End of the World, Really?

 
Everyone imagines the end of the world
as widespread death and destruction.
This may happen at the start, however,
I imagine the conclusion far differently.
 
I believe the world we live in is already dead
We exist by harvesting its’ dwindling remains
Not enough food, water, resources, space
rare species vanish as soon as discovered.
 
I also believe that death and rebirth  
will happen from one breath to the next.
 
The earth was not created young
It is created anew every second
for each and every living being
It is not difficult for for me to see  
that it’ll happen once more, for all
 
What once died will live once more
Life will permanently triumph over death  
remedies known for every ill and pain
Those persecuted will know peace
All that hunger will be forever satisfied.
 
Externally, the world will look the same
Life as we know it will proceed as is.
just with one indelible, irrevocable change
Universal, enduring peace and understanding
All questions answered, prejudices gone
no more fear of death, loss, hurt or lack.  
 
At the world’s end - let me correct that
the end of this world, as we know now
will be the introduction of the world eternal.  
 
If only it would happen in our lifetime!

COMPETITION PIECE 'THE END OF THE WORLD' : According to Kabbalah and esoteric Judaic thought, the world is recreated every second for every single person. At the end of the present world, the dead will return to life, all sickness and pains erased, and no one will lack anything they need. Yet the world will continue to operate exactly as it does now, except there will be universal understanding and peace for everyone. Religious Jews pray for this reality daily, and recognize these concepts in a prayer called 'Ani Maanmin' (I Believe). It is an expansion of the 13 Articles of Faith taught by the philosopher Maimonides, and considered a cornerstone of the Jewish faith.
