She never cries,
she just endures
knowing full well
that she’ll outlast
our need to conquer,
our need to control
our grip is strong
but fate has foretold

that our disrespect,
which knows no bounds,
match has been met
on earthly grounds,
for that which we used,
abused and consumed
has now become
our treasured tomb.

For though we may
trivialize her,
blasphemies
and minimize her,
she is always there
as our support
she never cries
she just endures.

  1. The earth is a living organism in its own way and man strives to conquer and kill everything in its path. Let us hope that in time, man’s brain will develop enough to realize they are conquering nothing but rather, obliterating everything in their path. Very well written.
