Mother’s Barren Bosom

She yearns to breathe the free ‘n unmasked air

Alas! All she receives is shackles and fetters everywhere.

Amidst the cacophony and the glum

Exquisite lives are obliterated

Hopes ‘n dreams are incarcerated

Happiness ‘n exuberance is incinerated.

 

Her gaping wounds ‘n the scaling scars

Continues to expand sans any bars

Ain’t we culpable for her distress and her jeopardy

When all she bestowed upon us

Was pristine air and unadulterated love

Garnished by her verdant greens.

 

Her radiant sun, warmed our souls

Her endless expanse of azure waters

Calmed our senses, nurtured our souls

Bathing us with serenity and healing power

But still we chose to celebrate her discomfort

Turning a deaf ear at her melancholic wails.

 

Her children have stabbed her time and again

She was incredibly stoic to gulp down all her pain.

Yet she managed to camouflage her sufferings

For the sake of her children and their wellbeing.

 

Now that her children are locked down

Her verdant greens have started to thrive, donning their prettiest gown

Those briny waters too, rejoiced with glee

Dancing ‘n prancing with sheer freedom.

 

Oh Mother Nature, I bow to thee

To you, we are grateful now and forever shall be

Nestled in your arms are our dreams

You are our Mother, our source of alchemy!

I’m impressed, I have to state. Really seldom do I come across a blog site that’s both educative as well as amusing, and also let me inform you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not nearly enough people are talking intelligently around. I am extremely delighted that I stumbled across this in my search for something associating with this. Ernesta Bran Rind
