The world is crying

The world is crying

The world is crying, From the years of pain,
Scars that have been inflicted upon it,
Poisons and fumes that destroy and kill,
It weeps for itself, As no one else will,
Rain pours down from the heavens,
Trying to wash away all that is bad,
Till all is drenched and drowned,
Puddles seep into the ground, Slowly,
Try to cleanse, To purify a world poisoned,
To flush out the living evil we have put there,
Through out all the years, All the pain,
Waiting for the sun,  Evaporation,
Where does it go then, In the end,
We recycle this and that,
Now we even recycle death,
Effects are major, life shaking,
Extinction is threatening us,
Do we, Can we, Hear the call.....

After thought!!!!
(We care not for what we cause,
Solutions evade us for we care not,
Too few, Too little, Too late,
The motto of the human race...)

I found your poem to show a very good description of us not being a very good steward of God's earth that he entrusted to us. Your poem is very metaphoric.

I enjoyed how it was conveyed, how damaging we are to our island of a planet we live on ~

Lets hope the younger people take your words to heart. Perhaps it's still not too late to turn things around. Like you said, we never realize how bad things are until it's too late... Great content! Steve. (polishprince)

Good poem. It gets across a pressing issue that hasn't really been dealt with because there are still those who don't listen.

Yes, apply the notion of everything in moderation. Balance is everything.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
