In time

In time

In time all land must change
as plates collide or drift apart.
In time the world will change
as power shifts and problems start
to tilt the global balance.
So what will happen now?

In time the ice age passed
ushering in the human race.
In time the empires passed
and human knowledge grew apace
till science held the balance.
So what will happen next?

In time the world will warm
and oceans rise as ice caps shrink.
In time the human swarm
of life will take us to the brink
when earth will lose its balance.
So what will happen then?

In time will we see how
the earth has suffered at our hands?
In time will we find how
to make amends, and heal the lands
till nature restores the balance.
So life will come again.
