Endangered Specie

In the beginning, she was as pretty as a rose beaming with innocuous smiles.
Her eyes shone like diamond in the dark. She charmed all with an aura of serenity.
Her breasts weans and feeds many hungry mouths.
She breathes forth a breath of freshness to flora and fauna.
Until dark fumes enveloped the air, choking the life out of her.
Her beauty fades away each passing moment.
Her offspring cut down with malice.
Venomous machines prowling every direction.
No one to continue in her stead when she leaves the scene.
The whirlwind blows in fury, the candle is put out and darkness swallows her beauty.
Who will salvage her from the fiendish villains. They will stop at nothing to erase her memory from the face of the earth and it will only become a figment of imagination.
Who will protect her from the poachers of her fate. She cries out in anguish, her laughter is stolen from her lips.

Who will rescue her from the imminent doom. She watches helplessly and hopelessly while she is chased out from her abode.
Who will restore all she has lost.
Her home lies in ruins, she fears the day she will vanish into oblivion.

O Mother Earth, I feel your pain. Your heart bleeds for your children. River of tears you shed as the curtain is drawn and lights fade out.
