Unnecessary Tears - Poem by Debra Anne Chapman

Sur-real cold fragile landscape,
of tormented human emotions,
Uncalled for anger sweeps the country side,
like a raging cold blizzard of emptiness,
Destruction and uncertainty make their mark,
on the desolate face of the winter atmosphere,
The ground covered by unclean waters,
the air smitten with unnatural microbes,
mothers' wailing from loss and pain,
Earth's precious life forms desecrated,
by one species that believes they are rulers.
Animals suffer innocently from destruction,
The Earth screams from unjust consequences.
Orphaned children cry out for love and understanding,
for these are the tears of all wars.
May we avoid them through wise living,
and work together for a peaceful planet.
