Listen!
Can you hear it?
A death-wail carried on the wind!
It is heard after senseless destruction on a grand scale.
It is a gut-wrenching, soul-splitting sound.
It is heard,
When a species becomes extinct!
When a rainforest is leveled!
When a forest is clear-cut!
When a wetland is filled in!
When children suffer and die needlessly!

Listen!
Can you hear it?
A death-wail carried on the wind!
It is a heart-rending,
Spirit-raping alarm everyone should hear.
But only a few of us do, and we know its message.
And we weep as another small piece of us dies also.

Listen!
Can you hear it?
A death-wail carried on the wind!
If everyone could hear this alarm,
The sound would be deafening!
If no one were able to hide from this alarm,
If everyone could feel it down to the essence of their being.
Maybe the destruction; the violation; the killing would end!

I definitely think that the death wail would die if every soul heard it.. becuz it would hurt so bad.. that no one would dare to do anything to harm anyone..

well written! love it
