NaPoWriMo – Day XXII – Gaia

Dear Mother of all folk
Its been a while since we last spoke
I know things aren’t going well
Despite all you take
I know that you ache
Beneath your hard and dense shell

Your children mistreat you
They exploit and they beat you
And yet you suffer for the most without sound
They fight and they quarrel
They bicker for laurels
Even though your riches abound

You give to each child
Equally with a smile
You look not at creed or race
Yet we are ungrateful
And o so hateful
And bring a frown to your face

Dear mother forgive us
Though we scream and we cuss
For though we have lost our way
Some of us are learning
For a better world we’re yearning
We’ll yet give you a brighter day
