NaPoWriMo Day 22 Nature’s Curse

NaPoWriMo Day 22 : Today’s pompt is  to write a poem in keeping with Earth Day!!

Coat us gently in your breath mother nature,

dress us in your warp and weft!

Love us all, your children dear,

though we all have hurt you and brought you many a tear.

We have pained you brought you low,

stabbed you yet you love us still and will not let go.

We, all issue from your womb,

treat you bad and stripped you bare and kill your blooms.

We have raped you daily, and burned your soul

exposed your softest parts to all who make your gifts their greedy goal.

Taken, taken is all we have done we never spared a thought

of how we should repay you for all that you have done.

We leave you bleeding arms outstretched we rip from you all we can get.

Never never do we spare  a thought for all the torture that on you we have wrought!

Somehow like a mother you love us and bless us and encourage us to fly.

Yet how do we repay you, we rip out your guts and leave you to die.

Mother, mother be patient yet we need all to learn from you for you know more then we shall ever forget!

Sometimes your anger you unleash on our selfish heads,

you rip up crops and smash our towns and pee on us till the rivers overflow their beds!

You pull back the oceans in the mist of mighty storms

then hurl it back at us killing many destroying all in your path

we stand open mouthed at the aftermath.

You show us how strong you are,

you could destroy us all it is within your power.

But you love us like a mother dear

and you lets us stay though we do not deserve you and that is crystal clear!
