Population Zero

For more than three billion years,
Life had existed on Earth.
Now, it is gone.

Two billion years ago,
Life exploded with the evolution of the nucleus.
Now, it is gone.

Six hundred million years ago,
Animals formed and began to rule.
Now, they are gone.

For nearly two hundred million years,
Giants roamed the land.
Now, they are gone.

Two hundred thousand year ago,
Homo Sapiens first walked upon this Earth.
Now, we are gone.

Today the Earth became barren again;
The war spared no one, and nothing.
Now, everything is gone.

What a beautiful world it was;
Perhaps, the greatest miracle ever in a sea of darkness.
Now, it is gone.
