*~Save our earth~*

Have you ever taken the time
To see what was around you?
Taken the opportunity
To gaze at every little detail of your surroundings?
Or have you closed your eyes stubbornly
Because you prefer to be blind?
In the truth
You don't want to admit that our precious earth
Is falling apart
It's beautiful skirts of grass
Is dying
It's garden of stunning plants
Is running out of air
And us,
Us, the ones who made it this way
Will one day perish into a dark hole
In a way,
We are all selfish murderers
Killing the sol we walk upon
With our trash and disgrace, our ungratefulness
Slowly it shall fade
Slowly we shall perish
Save the earth
Save our hearts and souls
Or forever be lost
In a pit of death and regret
Save our home
Save our air
Save our lives

    Save the nature, save the earth for the future of our children. Nature was a beautiful gift given to us from above. Let's preserve it for our own good, to balance the environment and keep it good. Nice write........10+++ (Report) Reply

    I share your concern and care for the earth. Everyday I look out of my window into my back yard at the green grass, the tall trees, the squirrels, and whatever else catches my attention. I do not want to lose all of this. I keep my yard on the wild side so that it is more inviting to the animals. (Report) Reply

    A very thought provoking poem with reflection of
    the immodalities of the world that have lead it on
    the verge of extinction. The essence of the poem
    should be conveyed to the general populations
    to create the state of well being for the planet and
    awareness for the up rising of the saviours who
    would play the major role in saving the earth....10 (Report) Reply
