And The Oceans Surrender

Posted by annabelsheila on May 16, 2010 at 5:54 PM


She weeps black tears that destroy

Every living thing they touch.

In her agony, she writhes

Rolling, restless, bewildered!

She has always nurtured them,

Yet they seek to destroy her.

And she is like a helpless child.

Defenceless, she cannot defy them

For they are obsessed with greed,

And will stop at nothing to ensure

Their cups overfloweth!

They have defiled her, raped her,

And beaten her consistently

With a growing intensity.

Yet for these atrocities,

There were no consequences!

But inevitably she will have her revenge,

For what will be left

After she has succumbed to their torture?

What will they have gained?

They cannot breathe the air;

Food supplies have disappeared;

And they thirst, but the water is poison;

The beautiful oceans that surround us,

Belong to every single creature

That inhabits our struggling planet!

What right do we have to destroy,

That which was never ours alone?

Our oceans are weeping, as they surrender

And the sound is deafening!

oh anna, i love this, you have said what my heart cries. how can anyone defile our home and not care....do you remember the original star treks....how long ago those were, and how far advanced were many of the ideas of some of the shows.....it is amazing to think how far back those were now and we still keep plundering our precious earth. keep you words flowing...
Merry Christmas, dear lady
