Nature Devoured - Poem by Vinh Hoang

Humans have great dominion,
but have they used it wisely
Resources drained, at a cheetah's pace.
Resources devoured of which nature enshrines.
Whatever is flawless,
we do the conflicting.
Whatever is true,
we do the reverse.

Nature shall pay its thanks
Much greater then our carefree attempts.
Whatever we deplete, we must recover,
Whatever we exhaust, we shall renew,
The Earth has sacrificed itself,
Just for the survival of mankind.

Nature's blessing shall return,
If we still have memories of her.
