Let The Earth Breath - Poem by Damian Cranney

The lungs of earth, are being attacked,
If we want to keep breathing its now we should act,
If not for the sake of our own peace of mind,
Then for our children‘s children and all of mankind.

Trees by themselves are a beautiful sight,
Aesthetically pleasing in their own right,
But of greater importance and why we should care,
The trees and the plankton, Provide all of our air.

A forest the size of a small country, I fear,
Is torn, from the face of our planet each year,
To anthropomorphise the earth as a metaphor,
From space you would see it trying to breathe more.

There are many things that, require our attention,
But gasping for breath, is one we should mention,
Please all plant a tree, well more if you can,
To be more eco friendly sounds like a plan.

    Another great piece. Good poetry knows you by name, Sir. Even the title of this piece is a one-sentence poem, and so great till the last word. Well thought, free flowing and spiced up with an impressive rhyming.
    Thanks, poet.10+++

    I love this very creative write and the wonderful message it sends! It saddens me that the city where I live is clearing out my small pine forest at the back of my yard for no apparent reason. Utter madness! (Report) Reply
