Humans - Poem by laura zeng

Why do humans fight their own kind?
Why do humans destroy their own home?
Why can humans be so unkind?
Why do humans hunt those who roam?

Because we are unnatural creatures
we think that this planet is ours
when in fact there are so many creatures
who long for a home just like ours

Why are humans human?
what makes us do the things we do?
there are willows and aspens
who weep as they get cut down too

The things humans do
are not for shelter
for food
or for water

The ways humans live
are ways nature can never forgive

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I don't mean to freak you out if this is a bit creepy(I don't know how it is creepy but it just sounds kind of scary) this poem is supposed to tell people about how us humans are polluting and destroying the earth like it's nothing, and how we are just the way we are, but we shouldn't be this way to our own planet. it's like murdering your own mother.
