“A letter from the Earth”
Dear: my people
Do you ever wonder like I do…?
How the world would look like?
Without the green grass,
Where would the birds build their nests?
Without these trees,
Where would people get the wood & papers?
Without these trees,
It really makes me wonder would these trees
Grow without a reach& fertile soil?
Do you ever wonder how would the word look like?
Without the blue sky,
… I find it had to stay strong
Because you have done me wrong,
My smile fades as the Grey sky, overwhelms me
Prove me wrong and start to show me some care
To me it seems like you just stare as they tear apart
Every little green thing I have…
How long will it take for you to realise
That day by day you are destroying me?
Near the lakes the frogs, used to crock with joy
The birds you to fly so high in rejoice of a brand new day,
But now...I even fear to use the ocean as my mirror
All the reflections’ of the beautiful cultivated land
And the green forest I used to carry while I was still
Under the care of your forefathers is nowhere to be found…
With an undivided heart I plea to you
Please spare me a chance to see the sun again
Until the new generation can see me
All am asking for is a chance
A chance to be green & healthy again
So that the bird may sing and fly high
And the frogs can crock again
And I shall regain my beauty & my dignity…
From the earth “The place we call home”
