Nature's Resounding Fear.

Nature's
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
