It will end some day

without a care
the ocean a body
breathing in and out
while the world
has lost the will
in reflection
the ocean tide rising
falling away
washing the shore
without intention
the beach laid bare
the crows look afar
from the empty world
humanity unredeemed
fallen and gone
human plans
in complete recession
to the point of extinction
