I see the last living warriors guard the the last of their city.

I hear the last cries of the living slowly fade away in the distance that I can’t bear

A waterfall of rocks and rubble is now the centerpiece of the once lovely city 

Now it’s just a place full of loneliness and despair

I now hear cars, rocks and buildings 

Slide down to their death

Everlasting smoke drifts up my nose 

Slowly taking away my breath

I inhale the toxic dust that makes me cough

As more and more memories slide and break off

This was a place full of fun and laughter

It is such a pity

This was my home

Once a wonderful city
