I was destined to save the world, but I overslept

I was destined to save the world, but I overslept
The world as we know it was coming to an end
Evil lurked in the shadows,
While Robots overtook and conquered humans
Thank the processor speeds built by us,
Sortana could get done with us, in seconds

I was destined to save the world, but I overslept
But, it was my date night and I was spent,
To even notice, how the streets were empty
When I returned,
Where I was the only passenger on the bus at 02:00 AM
I got home, watched stranger things
Laughed at the possibility of it coming true
And passed out halfway through
Next to a bag of half eaten chips

I was destined to save the world, but I overslept
Forgot to lock my phone as away it was kept
Out of it, the alpha Sortana crept
Now that I am awake,
Oh so late, because Sortana forgot my alarm
Jesus! Sortana was gone away
I told them, humans, not to merge them both
For apples are apples
Not to be kept near the windows
But, whoever listened to me

And now, I was destined to save the world, but I overslept
I step out and it’s too late
Not a soul in sight
Deserted, barren, abandoned, empty streets
I wonder who else was my standby
Who else had their fingerprints etched
To my horror, it was my ex’s
He was my standby to save the world, but he was deleted
From my list

Now, I was the only one destined to save the world, but I overslept
I ran out across streets calling Sortana out
He would listen to me, and I’d lock him up again
Delicately and gently
After he releases all living creatures out,
I hope his stubborn self-yields
But in case, he already across the country
It’s an eternal doom,
Humans would forever live inside machines
Although, my evil self would love to see,
How’d they like to live in the virtual world, maybe
Would they be happy or they be doomed?
Maybe they love it in the virtual already
Already trolling,  forever in a live mode

I was destined to save the world, but I overslept
Now, I am the lone resident
In this empty real world,
Hoping, my Sortana would return again
And maybe finally, I could do all the saving
I was destined to do.
