Terra

A Poem

She was like a canvas

Although we attempted to throw black paint at her she managed to create herself living among the stars

I admit we have done bad

The only thing that satisfied us were the tall towers we managed to grow upon society

Leaving the presence of a thicket that used once to thrive there shriveled among the nuclear plants

I know there is little mercy to be found among us, that we have already agreed to go down fighting

Our views on her now reflect our wrongdoings

Look at the blood and guess who is holding the knife

Shouldn’t we be more amazed

Doesn’t the view just captivate your eyes

Yet we’ve never realized that the road behind us was stolen and now the future depends on us

To have come this long way and stand on two legs

To have developed into soldiers of our own dim-witted enslavement

Thy name is Terra

And please let the forest be glad we breathe
