The Earth's Cry - Poem by Bironga Chadwick

What if the earth could talk
What would it say of us
Would it praise us for caring
Or demonize us for destroying it
Cutting down its trees
without replanting
To build the homes we live in
While destroying birds' nests
Clearing the forest for human habitation
For civilization to set in
modernization
But at what cost?

Nature cries for its children
For the animals, vegetation
But who listens
Who bothers to?
Human greed is the cause
Of the demise of a once green Eden
For their lustful souls
Are never satisfied

Who will pay attention
Who will rescue the earth
Who will fight for my children
For my habitation and yours?
