Oct 2020
Morning dew glistens off the surface of waking flowers
The sun happily calling the sleepy earth to awake this hour
Early birds flutters in song as their day begins
Sounds of love and longing fills the melody they sing.

Moment of peace before chaos arise
Silence before hatred split the divide
Serenity before pigment of skin matters
Tranquility before the ignorant chatter

Some demons awake with no ill intent
Earth screams in agony in quiet torment
Chaos rains in smiles and greetings
Choking on air she struggles breathing

Tears in the moons eyes as it arise
Dreams in prayer sent to the skies
Oceans rage with angered despair
trapped unhurried demise ensnared

As the night go silent
I can hear her breathe
Change in the climate
Close to being deceased
she our sustenance for centuries
We pay her in treachery
We our biggest enemy.
