A Mother's Tears

Updated on February 25, 2017




More than four billion years, of humanities accounting,

This, very bluest world, and to be like so many others.

A likeness of their ages ranging all about the galaxies,

These vibrant glowing stars, their sisters, fine brothers.


The Father and god, our creator, did so bless each one,

A universe of planets, of its creatures, all given a mother,

Beautiful smiles, upon their faces, being so faultless then,

These new planetary lives, gracefully, new days, usher in.






Every one of those lives set upon this earthen core,

From the widest of seas, so planned, to each shore.

All's protection, given by grandest of celestial bands,

So are held in place by our father's own caring hands.


All was meant to remain there for time, immemorial,

The creator's very promise, as our own directorial.

An invisible belt, magnetic source, captured radiation,

A discovery humankind has made by our innovation.


All are to be so blessed, people of this blue sphere,

As our dearest father stands by us each, so near,

Now a time, ours to allow, this earth's own demise,

Through such terrible greed and the telling of lies.


Poisoning of our oceans, this air we all do breathe,

Is so hard for us to realize the harm, or to conceive.

Soon to be too late, the last chances, life to retrieve,

When may we start again, or just to get our reprieve?


As now our Mother Earth, her end of life so slowly nears,

Does replenish the oceans, by weeping eyes, by her tears.

That destruction of the protecting band, by our own hand,

The air we all breathe, water to drink, lost, across the land.


When will we now all awaken from a most horrible nightmare,

Take back control, steer our ship to safety, show we all care?

Our days are each to be so numbered, for we must be aware,

Such devastation is done, as we slumbered, a time of despair.

      This is a very moving piece of writing. It needs to be in a book of poetry and set on a national scale.

      Loved the measure of each stanza and your metaphoric use of some items that you mentioned.

      Like I said. A very moving piece of writing.

      Keep up this wonderful poetry for it will touch and has touched so many.

      It is so sad that Mother Earth tries extremely hard to keep us all replenished, but she desperately needs our help now. I was encouraged for a while, but in an instant, discouragement came upon us all when the new world leader, and his orders, started to be put into place. I don't know how we can get back to restoration if all the efforts we take to do so gets trampled on by big oil businesses and such...

      This is a very important piece here, Whonu. Thanks for sharing!

      Good imagery, good message, good poetry. Thanks for a good read.
