Mother Paradox

Mother Paradox

A Story by Wordwhirl
"

God and Monster

"
I am 'Mother' Nature. Or that's how humans, the most sophisticated of my inhabitants, prefer to address me.

And I have to say, humans are complicated, confused creatures. To them, I am a paradox of a Mother. They have entitled me to unconditional love as well as unconditional fury. A mother who will willingly unleash fury on her children when they misbehave.

What kind of a monstrous mother does that make me?!

Sure, they hurt me, a lot. And the poor beings believe that, I hurt them back intentionally. The more imaginative ones can also visualise me having an evil laugh after unleashing a torrent of misery. Tit for Tat.

But I know what it feels like to be neglected and hurt. I know the agony of pain and helplessness. And I will never wish it upon any breathing being, even if it's the cause of my troubles.

That said, I can't actually blame my children for the paradox. The fury they see, is nothing but my pain. Eons of bottled up pain, spilling out all at once.

The waters, my tears. The lava, my blood. The fire, my agony. And when I scream out in pain, my children happily label me the Devil.

All I want is to be loved and cared for. A little bit of your time, my children. That's all I need. A mother is entitled to that.

So stop hurting me, kids. You are not strong enough to bear the brunt of my pain. Let me love you, the way I want to be loved.

Stop making me a Monster.

That's so beautiful. The agony of Mother nature in it's the purest form.
I think if every person thinks like you the world would be a better place to live in.

Often we fail to understand the fury of Mother Nature is owing to the actions of us humans.

Excellent writing. Keep on churning more creativity!

Very creative & effective. I like how you personify Mother Earth & you voice her gripes, but it's a balanced view since she also admits her shortcomings, but also explains why it may seem she's a "bad mother"! This is a great way to treat this topic. But still, there will be those who already believe this & those who will never believe it. Since I am experiencing wildfires all around me in California, some close enuf for me to be under an evacuation order, your message really hits home. Mother Nature is screaming fire around here & some of us hear her & some of us ignore her & blame others (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I agree. Some will never understand the dangers of treating Earth as if we own it. And I hope the fi.. read more

Glad to hear you liked the story.
Wise and honest words shared dear Neetha.
"All I want is to be loved and cared for. A little bit of your time, my children. That's all I need. A mother is entitled to that."
The above lines should be norm for us. But we abuse the gift of nature. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry for nature.

Hi Neetha, I love this.I have often thought that the earth and everything on it is one single living entity. We are a part of everything, and everything is a part of us. Thanks for your share and for reminding me how precious it all is.

Its nicely written and the first person scheme you choose is definitely appreciable. You could have represented it into a poem form, I would have preferred that. But still the way you put out the mother nature's personality in your story its up to the mark. Its true that we humans make our mother suffer a lot but she doesn't seeks revenge to us. She is our mother and has the right to scold us for our mistakes. Or in other way if you can imagine its just because we find alternatives for the work we have to do. Due to this search of resources we had made the planet a mess. Therefore o maintain the balance of work or Karma or to maintain the true form destruction in the form of natural disaster occurs. Obviously its just my imagination and personal view. It was well written
