Life reflections

The Daily Prompt : Generation

There has been life on this Earth
For hundreds and thousands of years,
And there have been
Hundreds and thousands of generations.
Not only of human beings and other animals
But of every form of life.
Some have continued to live,
While others perished on the way,
It has always been
Survival of the fittest.
Generations of human beings
Have lived on this planet
Seemingly the fittest
And the most powerful,
Who believe they have
Achieved a lot
And have the power
To control everything.
They have,
But a moment of Nature’s fury
And the work of generations
Comes to naught.
