Our mother Earth

Our mother earth,
a beautiful jewel
surrounded by emptiness.
The vast blackness space
pierced by the brightness
of her sapphire blue.
Home to countless souls
living under her care.
Nourished by her,
protected by her.
Yet there are those
who fail to understand
this simple truth of life.
Raping her mercilessly
for their own selfish needs.
Destroying her
day by day.
When will man learn
that without our mother
we will surely perish.
If we are not kind to her
there will come a day
when her patience will be tested
and she will retaliate.
On that day, all hope will be gone,
and we will be no more.
Reduced to a mere memory

in the darkness of space.
