My fragmented flinders cling and clatter
Those impaling yells and bawls asphyxiate me
My viridian meadows are a thing of past
Buried ‘neath the sky-kissing concrete vast.
My flowing tresses are yanked off ruthlessly
Barren acres freckle my being dauntlessly
My stoic nature has been taken for granted
Unsteady morsels of hope, refuse to be planted.
Into the unknown, I gaze awaiting a miracle
Oh, dear humans! To you I pray for clemency
Let my somber browns bear the fruits of hope
It’s only you, who can succor me to cope.
Far away from this heinous avarice
Let’s embrace my greens yet again
Draped in melancholy, my words are slurred
Please do not let my deafening screams go unheard
