What The World Would Say If It Could Talk - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Look at me
See the butterflies fly away
See the world in my eyes

See the shadows in the sky
See the fallen angels
Of a world gone by
Look into my eyes
See your life go by

See the magic in the sky
See the anger in the clouds
See the thunder
See the lightning in my eyes
See what you've done to my life

You destroyed
Everything I ever gave

    Ok i will give 2 comments

    1.Joking comment: If world can talk, it must be scary and nobody will dare to do anything bad...why? let say if someone pollute/dig the mines, sacrifice the river with greediness, earth will grumble...'Oh no people, you will bury in my soil' hahahaha so nbody will make disturb it...

    2.Serious and true comment: Special crafted poem, full of awareness...I totally agree with you, how come we become so selfish to sacrifice and kill the beauty of nature like that...Slowly we destroy our own life right? Dave, this is great poem to open and talk this..We use natural resources air, light and space free but we waste it with terrible pollution...bad for earth and return to human: (...good poem..raise my 10+ for this theme :) _Unwritten SOul
