Seeds Of Death
Oh! What poor soul was lent
To bend an ear upon the wind
To hear the sighs and sorrows of mankind
This mother earth this ravaged soul
The heart of man as black as coal
That takes and takes returneth not
Upon his ill begotten lot
The flesh of earth this green of land
Once tinged by Gods almighty hand
Now stained and spoiled and soaked in blood
A mothers tears become a flood
The innocence of childhood dreams
Are tarred and marred by muted screams
What right have we to still draw breath
When all we sow are seeds of death.

A wonderfully written poem, you know how I love your work, always so insightful and makes me think beyond myself.

I'm not a big believer in Karma or Fate and whatnot, but the adage "we reap what we sow" does tend to be true for the most part... Anyway, great work (great title too); well said and well done.

That's a valid question, buddy...We are the worst and the best this planet has produced. We seem to be smart enough to produce technology, but too dumb to know how to use it.....len

This is a stirring lament for mother earth. As right as rain and nicely expressed!

 Powerful......Angry words that express the death of Mother Earth ...
 Man has taken and taken more and more each year
and give nothing back only endless changes
now.....She Hurts
