The Earth's Drum by Nada Adel Sobhi - Poem




Dum! Dum! Dum!

Goes the drum

Of the earth’s core.

You’ll hear it,

Once you leave the shore.


Like a ticking clock,

A beating heart,

It goes tick-tock

And thum-thum.


The earth is alive and raging;

She wants to explode!

All her power and might, she is summoning

To strike once and end it all.


Once her fury is unleashed,

None and nothing shall stand tall;

Everyone and everything will fall!


To the dust and ashes from whence they came,

They will return, and the earth will begin anew;

Nothing will be the same…
