I Heard The World Crying Poem by Randy McClave

I Heard The World Crying

Rating: 4.6


I heard the world crying
As though she was dying,
And then came the rain
As though sympathy to her pain,
She was being polluted
And her body was being looted,
Myself and a million more sighed;
She just cried.

I heard the world moan
But, she was not alone,
I and a million more didn't like how she was treated
She was used, and abused, and cheated,
She gave us all a home to live
But, we took, we destroyed and we didn't give,
Promises to help her were broken and unkept;
She just wept.

I heard the world grieve
Maybe from what she couldn't believe,
Pollution it was now everywhere
And seemingly to her, no one did care,
They dug inside of her for coal and oil
They polluted her waters and the air and the soil,
And when man's protection for her failed;
She again wailed.

I heard the world howl
Then I heard her growl,
With her mighty winds and storms
From all of nature's platforms,
But, we won't care and we won't listen
Then will come an instant frisson,
We will ignore, and then us the world will deny;
She will die

I heard the world howl Then I heard her growl, With her mighty winds and storms From all of nature's platforms, But, we won't care and we won't listen Then will come an instant frisson, We will ignore, and then us the world will deny; She will die.....beautiful poem dear poet..

reminds me of a line in " Eve Of Destruction.' We take so much and give so little back. A thoughtful penning of a serious subject. tyfs

Returning to this marvel of a work, a cry for our planet that we cannot ignore. Wish the masses understood this. Great work!
