My Last Day in the World

They told me that

To-day was my last day

On this planet.

At the end of to-day,

They said,

A severe catastrophe would

Blast the planet and

All living beings on Earth

Would cease to exist.


Oh, my last day on Earth!

My last day on Earth!!

How can it be? For

I have not lived my life fully!!

I have not had as much

Joy as one would want and -

And it is already my last day on Earth!!


Oh, Earth, Earth! The beautiful Goddess!

I have not worshipped Thee wholly,

Have I?

I have taken Your soil for granted,

The life You gave me,

The lives I have taken from You.

Oh, pray, why is it so soon?

Why not tomorrow?

Or, better still,

Why not next year?


Oh, Mother Earth,

How I love Thee so!

I have not had but the chance

To tell you how much

I love Thee.

You give life to little plants,

The little animals, and

The little insects.


Oh, Mother Earth,

How I love Thee so!

I have not had but the chance

To tell you how much

I love Thee.

You make such wonderful trees,

Such mighty animals, and

Such wonderful butterflies.


Oh, Mother Earth,

How I love Thee so!

I have not had but the chance

To tell you how much

I - Chance? Ah!

Chance I did have, dear Mother,

But, I had not seized it then.


Mother, will You forgive me?

I have not appreciated You

All these years,

Have I?

Doubtless, I regret it;

Will You not give me

But one more chance? Alas,

Not just I, but all the

Living creatures that

Have not yet realised

Their love for you.

Will you not do that, Mother?


This is my last day on Earth;

I have many things to do,

Many wishes to fulfil.

Which one should I do first-

Watch that serial on television?

Or, perhaps,

Listen to that country song on the player?

Or, perhaps,

Talk to that friend of mine, who

Loves me dearly? Or, perhaps,

That one who wronged me greatly?

Or, perhaps-

I do not know what to do first.

Alas, it is my last day on Earth.


Perhaps, I need to watch that serial-

No! A song would do better. Wait-

Should I talk to my dear friend first? Or-

No! I think I shall talk to one,

Who wronged me greatly;

For, this is the best chance

To Forgive and Forget.


Oh, beautiful Earth,

I can feel my end nearing!

Is it so soon? Will You not,

For the sake of Your future children,

Save us from this inevitable catastrophe?

Mother, Mother, I implore you:

Do have pity on us, forgive us,

For the sin we had committed in

Ignorance.

I promise Thee that

It shall not happen again. Only

Save us from this terrible disaster.


Do You hear us, Mother?

Tell me what to do

To redeem myself,

To atone for the sin that

I had committed

In my ignorance of Your suffering.

Order me, Mother, and I shall do so.

Henceforth, I am Your faithful servant;

Just tell me what You wish me to do.


Do you hear us, Mother?

Alas - her spirit is dead!

We are all alone now-

Her children.


Mama, Papa, Brother, and Sister,

It looks like the end of the world is

Inevitable.

So, come, let me embrace you:

We can be together when

The world begins to end.

We shall stay together,

For, now, the Sun is setting

And, soon, the world shall end.

Beloved ones,

This is our last day on Earth.

Let us hope that shall meet

On the other side.

Goodbye!

Mama, Papa, Brother, and Sister,

I hail thee goodbye;

Goodbye, everybody,

We shall meet on the Other Side...


Ah, I can feel the end so near!


They told me that

To-day was my last day

On this planet-

Oh, how swiftly does the Sun set!

The Time is approaching us rapidly.

Oh, God, our Time has come!


They told me that

To-day was my last day

On this planet.

At the end of to-day

They said,

A severe catastrophe would

Blast the planet and

All living beings on Earth

Would cease to exist.


And how right they were, too...

More Recommendations

luckybean13: I think I enjoyed this book the most so far although I kind of figured what was going to happen by glancing over the synopsis’ of the other books. There is so much suspense as items are revealed. Little nuggets of information dropped here and there making the need to read on a must. Well done,...

luckybean13: A lighthearted book with a free and fun feel overall. A bit of a love triangle going on where you just can’t pick one...I’m excited to see where it all goes.

Nicole Guevara Lao: The originL story is a must read and if you are like me and can’t get over the Knight family (esp. the kiddos) then continue reading!

Samantha: This book is amazing though I would have been happier if it wasn't so short and get more drama from Luke n his twin. Also see how their blend over as years go by with more fiction. It a very NYC mafia short story that lives u with a lot of unanswered questions.

Jan Neal: I'm really enjoying this book and I look forward to the next update every time. I think the plot is interesting and that keeps wanting more .
