Gaia (or Gaea) ....Mother earth...Terra... A primordial deity
all are my names,
all are who I am,
I was there at your genesis , you were nothing more then clay until Prometheus molded you...
I let my body be your abode,
In high hopes that you would nurture the beasts and creatures that live among you,
In high hope that would nurture all living life even those that may not utter a word or sound of any kind,
And what do you do ?
you defile me...
by beheading my trees.,
by poisoning my water,
polluting the very air you breathe...
you hunt the beasts of this earth for fun, taking all you desire from them,
and not a single one of them a sacrifice to me,
Centuries after centuries
years after years,
month after month,
minute after minute,
second after second,
you never fail to slowly destroy this gift that was bestowed on to you
Have you no compassion for the very ground you rest on , walk on, live on ?
Have you no compassion for me ?
I am the celestial body that houses all life,
I am not the celestial body that is the playground of death,
Do I look like the pits of Hades to you ?
Everything harmful you do to this earth ,
I feel the pain...
a pain too potent for any mortal being to withstand,
even the Titan Twelve would scream in madness and immense agony
On one hand though, I have to give it to you mortals,
you can disagree for eternity on anything whether it be love , war or politics
yet somehow when it comes to the earth itself you unknowingly collaborate as one to create what could soon be a spherical decadent wasteland....
Tell me mortal beings how is that you are fast to take that which belongs to the land, yet slow to replenish what you have used ?
