"Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open."
~Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore

What would the world do
If it all just stopped
Ended, done
Just finished
And we had to start again

Some people might be glad
Positively giddy for a new start
A change from old ways
New beginnings for all
Another chance to live “right”
If there is such a thing

Others would panic
Wondering, “What will we do? What will we do?’
Fearing that they need to face the unknown
Without the comforts they once enjoyed
Or any real safety
But what will all of the comforts matter
We all die anyway

Maybe some people would end it
Go insane
Kill themselves or others
They might not be able to take the stress of change
“Start over? I can’t start over! Why is this happening?”
Sometimes people just can’t do it
We’re only human

But who would decide to find friends and family?
So they could start over together
Help each other along the way
Set up communities
Who would help others along the way?
Which ones of us would feed the hungry, find homes for everyone?

So what would we do if everything stopped
And we had to start again

I was just thinking about all of the things we have and what might happen if we lost it all. I wanted different ideas of what people might do and it turned into this.
