Nature's Resounding Fear.

Resounding Fear

   Ever notice how easy it is
   For us to quickly destroy
   Things in our environment
   Created thousands of years before?

   Our world no longer breathes in peace
   Her waters are clean no more
   Pollutants infest her nostrils
   Slick-black has become her shores.

   For what reason does this all take place?
   What is it we so relentlessly seek?
   Is it wealth, greed or perhaps prestige ...
   Or to fill some insignificant need?

   Humankind controls its own fate
   That is to a certain degree.
   Nature screams out for help!
   We must eradicate our harmful deeds.

   I hear Nature's voice among scanty trees
   And say a silent prayer
   For being one with her I sense
   Her resounding fears

   That if we continue along this path
   Indeed we'll seal our fate
   For mass destruction and loss of life
   Won't easily be replaced
