Cry for the Earth

Cry for the Earth

A Poem by Purbleazaleya
"

Tittle says it all

"

I close my eyes

And tilt my head to the skies

I dream to see

I yearn to see

Clear blue

And deep green of tress

I yearn to smell

Clean fresh air

I yearn to feel

An Earth pure as the day it was born

 

Alas it was only a dream

A wish that could never come true

Till the day I die and cease to see

For when my eyes open

All I see is the thick haze

Blur of white and not the calm blue

Scent that pains my lungs

And choke the lives

Of all that live in it

 

The heat burns

Drain the life of those under the sun

The cold bites

And no life can be born in the harsh frost

Where our eyes can see

All we see is our world in ruin

 

I wish we could find

A way to undo

What we have done

In greed over time

We took it all for us

And never turn back and see

The world we ruin

Day by day

 

I hope we will find

A way to bring life

Back to the Earth

So that our kids

May see

May smell

May feel

A pure world

Full of grace and life

Sadly, this poem has so much truth in it. It's unfortunate how people take nature, and it's resources for
granted. We are slowly poisoning our own planet. What kind of future are we going to have for our kids,
if we keep this up? This is a beautifully written piece.

You can feel the emotion in this poem and how much you care. Really well conveyed along the whole poem.

I especially liked the final stanza. The truth behind this brings home the true message of the whole poem whilst being utterly beautiful.
Very well written.

It is unfortunate that we know what we have done to our planet but no one wants to stop it.
Big corporations only see financial gains from ravaging the earth.
A great poem.

This is so powerful and true. I agree it is sad what we have done to the earth over the years. It is amazing how thoughtless we were. Great job penning this one! :)
