Is anybody listening? ... Does anybody care?

Mother

Is anybody listening? Does anybody care? Is anybody listening? Is anybody there? Can you hear her screams of anger? Can you hear her falling tears? Can you hear her cries of sorrow? Or do they fall against deaf ears? Is anybody listening? Does anybody care? Is anybody listening? Is anybody there? Can you hear her softly whimpering? Can you hear her whispering fears? Can you hear her weakened cries for help? Or do they fall against deaf ears? Is anybody listening? Does anybody care? Is anybody listening? Is anybody there? She’s the Mother of all creation, Yet, she’s treated with such disrespect. Man continues to take ... Never giving back, Leaving her land, air - And water a mess! Is anybody listening? Does anybody care? Is anybody listening? Is anybody there? We must join together, let’s make a pledge, To help our Mother for our children’s sake. The clock is ticking … And the end is near, Let’s work together - Before it’s too late! Can you hear her screams of anger? Can you hear her falling tears? Can you hear her cries of sorrow? Or do they fall against deaf ears? Is anybody listening? Does anybody care? Is anybody listening? Is anybody there? ??? ?? ? KjK072712

Awesome write. I can so relate in my heart n thoughts about people mistreating our land. We all need to work together n keep it clean. Its sad to see that especially most kids today are not taught to care for mother earth. Thanks for sharing

Thanks Poett .. You are correct about the kids today..I agree.. But that is the Adults fault for not instilling respect in their children. Disrespect in general is rampant thru-out society.It's a sad state of affairs and I feel sorry for the generations to come. Thanks again for the read and comments ..much appreciated.Sorry for the delay in response.. I am rarely on this site anymore.. I am usually on Wattpad.com

Howdy Ken! Good to 'see' you. On this anniversary of Katrina I found this particularly appropriate. I am furious too. Is there anything any of us listeners can do? Love the passion, and the freedom to vent.

Thanks Lauri .. Sorry for such a long delay in response. I am really never on this site anymore .. I am on Wattpad.com ... I think the whole world is deaf! Unfortunately I do not know what us Listeners can really do .. I fear it's too late. But, I pray I am wrong. Thanks again :) Ken

Hey Ken, Are you back. I really like this one. The only thing I would hope for was to have it formatted so it is easier to read instead of in just one paragraph. Man, I can't just give you kudos and be done with it. Well, my friend, this is really good. Keep bringing us more!

Thanks Moot..Sorry for the delay in response.. Im on Wattpad.com now ..I rarely visit this site .. I miss the friendships here but it seems that this site is a ghost town .. Its unfortunate .. but seems time has a way of changing things... Thanks for the kudos and your critiques are always welcome .. I never take offense .. I purposely wrote this in paragraph form .. I wanted it to be different than how I would normally write. I wanted to make it more difficult to read .. because the subject matter isn't easy .. anyways, thanks again old friend! :) Ken

Hello my old friend. I am back. I was busy writing a tv series. Wow ! what a pain in the ass. I remember I had a few words about this subject. I will tell you this; Everyone is special, which includes you to and what you have to say. The way we each express it is always different, this, is what makes the world a special place.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
