Mea Culpa, Mother Earth - Poem by J. Jade T. Baguio

Grass were greener before,
Trees were bigger and more.
Now Earth is near to its destruction.
Diseases are scattered in every nation.

I wanted to know who killed my home.
The Earth is a sweet place where I roam.
Who slaughtered the fields where I used to run?
Who cut down the trees where I used to have fun?

So I tried to find clues
And I went to the seas.
But the sea is dead
So I cried and bled.

I tried to ask the games in the forest.
Perhaps they could give answer to my quest.
But my heart bled again
And I cried in the rain.

Then in a corner I sat
With my heart filled with wrath.
Only to find out
I am guilty of that.

Scenes start to flashback
As I ride on a truck.
The smoke went up
It flies to the cloudy top.

When I threw my garbage,
I didn’t thought I’d be in bondage.
There is blood on my shirt.
Mea culpa, Mother Earth.

    What a naked truth weaved and painted with words so skillful. Perfect rhymes and rhythm, simple diction but not aimless or pointless. Indeed, we children of mother earth are to be blamed for deforming her young look to that of an old woman via our careless actions and invention! We tend to be living by all means for the moment unmindful of the blazing fire being constantly set on the future. Thanks for sharing this nude pics of truth! (Report) Reply
