New Earth

A Poem by EternityWolf101
"

Joel Widow is a fictional character of mine and I'll be posting some poetry and stuff under his name. I'll be getting a book of poetry written under the name of Joel Widow at some point too, so......

"

Bleeding rocks pour their dead souls onto the floor

Crying their wicked tears in agony as the Earth weeps

I can only wipe them away

Brushing them on my shirt as I whisper,

“Everything will be alright.”

 

People tread on her from day to day

Week to week, year to year

Century after century

And they make her cry red tears

 

The ground shakes like the fist of a god

Fire scorches through the rocky exterior of her shell

Fountains of flames and embers shoot out like guns

The Earth screams her battle-cry

She has had enough of her daily abuse

 

Mountains erupt from the ground

Forming barriers between the countries

And capturing all of her inhabitants

 

When the black clouds form above

She strikes her enemies down with rage

Screaming her battle-cry over and over

 

As all the screaming echoes across the land

And the blood splatters on her chest

I sit alone in a field

Next to a group of misplaced rocks

And I pet them with a soft caress,

“Everything will be alright.”

 

- Joel Widow

Great, and I think that it's cool that you are using a different name than your own.

You're far too young to remember when they retailed "pet rocks." It was not a long-lasting promotion; the product was plentiful and easy to get much, much cheaper.
"New Earth" is very well-written and nicely presented; concerning a subject about which you obviously feel passionately.

I really like this. Such great descriptions. Quite a refreshing topic, written very well. I particularly like the first stanza. Keep up the good work!

Hmmm, very interesting. I'm not entirely sure what I think, it sounds, obviously, very dark. It's made pretty obvious your opinion when it comes to the earth and such. It's a very dark way of making an undoubtedly interesting point. I commend you on your ability to paint a picture and make your point, however, to me, it sounds as if you are indifferent to the deaths of humans as long as the earth is alright, which may or may not be how you feel, if it's not I suggest you throw in a line or two to make that clear. But overall, I definitely think you wrote it well, and it plants a very strong and interesting point int he mind of the reader.

Superb! - I love my home (planet) and love to see any ecology related poetry.
This stands apart from what I'm used to - well done!

I think "Wrath of Earth" would be a better title. Well-written.
