Forsaken Earth

I look back towards forsaken Earth
Once waters flowing rich with life
A world filled with hopeful energy
A future cast in evolutionary stone

Saddened that all that was left to see
Were the drying tears of the dying
The parched and scorched remains
Of life that did not heed the signs

Now as I abandon all that was
With a final glance I turn away
Onward now far into the unknown
Perhaps out of failure a new day
