POETRY: BLOODY TEARS OF MOTHER EARTH

ball pen art on pain
pain, pen art by Ecoart hub


Can you feel the stillness in the air?
Even the insects know that a great evil has been done!
Bodies littered all over the ground,
Unmoving! Dead!
Alas! When did we eat the heart that made us human?

Mother Earth cries out in heart rendering woes,
For the ocean of blood and flesh she is forced to accept?
She cries out in bitterness,
"Why, oh why?"
The gashes in her run with the blood of innocents poured away by those meant to protect?
When did we become so self involved that life is not worth nickel?
When did four legged creatures of no intelligence become worth more than human life?
When did we reduce ourselves to nothing that even the ants have more dignity and respect for life?

Mother earth roars in deep groanings,
One day she will revolt and not be appeased,
Till lives become worth more than cows and humanity returns to the hearts of men.
Maybe, just maybe...
Our tears will stop to flow
And our children can mourn their parents at ripe old age.
