A Star's Message

As I gaze upon you,
From my heavenly dwelling,
All I seem to see,
Is the dark foretelling,
Your future covered in hate and misery
And
Your beauty covered in dust and savagery.

The poverty and the lies,
The greed and the flies,
The humans simply animals,
Slaughtering like cannibals.
Your rivers and oceans,
Filled with waste,
The air so grimy,
So terrible to taste.

When shall it be?
When shall it be?
That you are you once again.
The greenery of your land,
The yellowness of your sand.
The whites of your skies,
And the end of the lies.
Your unforgettable beauty,
Lost
With humans forgetting their duty
Of taking care of the land they live on,
Forgetting hardships generations have forgone.
