Listen – II

Part II of II


Did you listen to that?
Nature is crying for help
As we try to kill its voice
The muffled sobs of trees
Echo all around while you
Cut them off with gleeful
Expressions enjoying the
Act of brutality that you
Commit without a thought
Oh, a bird just tumbled on
The ground withering as
she drowns in her own
Blood and her eyes forever
Sealed with questions that
Go unanswered as you
Throw her in the bag with
Rest of them for profits
Another gun shot and a
Deer is shot dead ‘perfect’
You pat yourself happily
The air is heavy with the
Smoke and noise of your
Huge empires and trophies
Of shiny cars screeching
Destroying all in their way
while the sea tries to fight
Protecting those to whom
it is home but alas you are
The mightiest and strongest
And once again you win
The sea bleeds tears of pain
But you unstoppable human
With insatiable hunger of
Destroying everything for your
Selfish needs and desires
Do you not listen to the cries?
The barely feltย heartbeat
Choked breaths, Nature is dying

  1. so true and so sad… but I am hopeful that more and more people are waking up to the facts that this earth is not here to serve us, that we need to take care of it, and preserve it for all time, not use and abuse it…. but your poem was very well written, nice job ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Okay, I didn’t expect the big *twist* but *sighs* it’s all true — we feel better destroying the Nature that has only been responsible for our joy. Thank you for writing this and for spreading the message across that ‘Nature is dying so please Stop!’.

    Blessings,

  4. I think most people are just ignorant to the world around them since most of the things we have are already given to us (homes made of wood, furniture, etc.) Its not until the media starts picking up on it until we realize what is going. Most people are aware, but count on others to take care of it. So if we all wait for others to help the environment it will take forever to help or change/reverse whats happening.

    1. I actually agree with you, either we just don’t know and when we do, we can’t be bothered. Humans have a tendency to know pain only when it hurts them, which is depressing.
