Nature’s Silent Cry

The old oak trees softly swayed their branches
As if to say,
“What are you doing to us and our forests (our home)?
Why are you destroying us
With your carelessness?
Before you know it,
We, the trees, will vanish slowly
Until we all are gone.
Take care of us now,
Then we’ll take care of you.
Heed to our plea, we cry!”

The grass and the flowers are gently blowing
With the wind
As if to say,
“Why are you dumping your trash on us?
Why are you throwing your cigarette butts
Out of your car window
And setting us on fire?
We, the grass, used to be beautiful and clean
To sit on and to romp around on.
We, the flowers, used to be a beautiful site to see
But now we’re trampled on.
Please stop littering on us, we beg of you.
Let us be beautiful again!
Heed to our plea, we cry!”

The lakes are rippling gently
As if to say,
“What have you done to us?
We used to be so clear and so clean
That you could see our bottom.
No more now since you polluted us
With your chemicals and your trash.
Please stop polluting us
Before our aquatic life is completely dead.
Heed to our plea, we cry!”
