Mother Earth's Cry
How long can I continue to love you,
As you rape and desecrate
My very being and essence of nature?
How long can I continue to shelter you,
As you lay waste
my abundant forests and plentiful jungles?
How long can I continue to quench your thirst,
As you pour forth intoxicants into
my crystal streams and life-giving waters?
How long can I continue to warm you,
As your dark clouds of industry ravage
my priceless atmosphere and angelic skies?
How long can I continue to feed and nourish you,
As you multiply and divide beyond
my abundant shores and pristine valleys?
How long can I continue?
Not long my child ...
