i am earth fighting for life ... anger boils over

drips acid rain
burns black smoke

... throws tornadoes
ashes and lava

where once was beauty
scorched earth remains

pools of silence

I am bleeding
I bleed
My blood runs

YOU have hurt me
YOU are hurting me

I am overused
I am used
I am abused

… and YOU just do not stop!

but stop you will

be stopped

  1. This writing was inspired after reading Katty Vandenberghe's poem "a prayer for earth" that I saw on Poetry Alliance's FB page - her poem made me 'feel' her writing, which is to me, what poetry is all about.
