Poem: Oh! Our Mother Earth

Mother Earth
Mother Earth

Oh! Our Mother Earth, how great you are!

You weigh 6.6 sextillion tons and provide shelter to all,

That’s why you are called “A Mother of All.”


You are a place, a place to thrive,

Where we live and spend our life,

We love you in abundance like a child,

We bow our head with Love and Pride,

We live and die at front of your eyes,

We again take birth and you give us Life.


But, sometimes in life, I feel your pain,

The pain you feel is arduous to explain,

Strange to say, yet veritable to think,

Let’s hear the Truth which will make us sink.


The fanatics are born to divide us all,

Terrorists are here to shatter the Peace overall,

Nuclear bombs are made for an invasion and fight,

Perhaps, there would be another world war right?

The pollution the human spreads is not so right,

The news of Global Warming is now alarming,

We are now afraid to see our Earth charming.

That is why natural calamities take place,

Poor Earth is injured and seems to die and fade,

We now encounter floods, volcanoes,

Earthquakes and hurricanes,

It’s because the evil in us has taken a place,


Our Earth then weeps and just weeps,

She never utters a word in pain and grief.

Dear Earth, you are great; as great as God,

Who forgives the evil who hurt you a lot,

Pity to say our humanity has a clot,

Poisoning the purity is not what we sought.

Please stop these atrocities with our Earth,

Keep in mind!

She is our Mother who gives us Birth.

Surabhi Kaura,

Excellent hub, as always.

You might be interested in one I've written:

Earth is in close tandem with the Sun and Moon, as well. Even science tells us that they discuss through the language of gravity and electromagnetism.

We think we're so cool because we talk in sound waves. Our speech travels faster through a solid. Objective speech travels fastest through a vacuum.

Thanks for sharing this,

Dan

Nice to see you penned down all your thoughts so beautifully in this poem about our MOTHER NATURE.I feel mother nature is also like LORD SHIVA the creator and destroyer.Thumps up for the poem.....Hope a day will come when all of us will start caring about the environment and nature keeping aside our personal differences and hidden monetary motives....

maheshpatwal,

Well said! That's a strong comment regarding Lord Shiv ji. I do believe that Brahma, Vishnu and Siva constitue the trinity of Hinduism. The saying is absolutely veritable, "Brahma is the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer." You've rightly pointed it out. We must care about our 'Mother Nature.' Thanks for devoting your time and reading this poem.

Yes excellent reminder to us that Earth is indeed a mother to all; and sadly if we don't pay the respect that she deserves, then the next generation will suffer the consequences of our lack of will to respect and protect her; and the harmonious relationship between her and future generations will seriously fall apart.

Thanks Surabhi for sharing this important message.

Yes to the power of Mother Earth. I do believe we need to learn how to control the negative inside of us so we can have a better life outside of us. That's why I write about emotional recovery and miracles. Peace and Light...Gary.

Enjoyed your poem. I think the same skills that help us control the negative inside can be applied to the environment and to social change. Peace and Light...Gary.

Nice poem, we should all take more responsibility for what we do. The Earth needs us to take care of her as she has done for us.

Wow! Surabhi what a powerful poem that almost made me shed tears for our dear Mother Earth. I also never realised you had been at hub pages for five years. Why did I not discover you until recently? The main image is wonderful..we have so much wisdom to learn from the native races of this world. I also wrote a hub called "How to Save Our Planet in 10 Easy Steps" that contains a poem with a similar message. I have been considering removing the poem and releasing it as a seperate hub so it receives more views.we shall see. Thank you for telling me about this hub.

Thank you, Jodah! So sweet of you… so sweet! Even I also never realised that you had been here at HubPages for six years. There is time for everything, my dearest. We were destined to meet in 2015. I'll have a look at the hub you just mentioned. I thank you from the bottom of my Heart. Om Shanti
