All that you see, is all that I am

The wind blows through the tress 
Whispering an untold secret 
Between mother nature and her children 
"I am dying," she says, I’ve given 
Everything and still the humans 
Demand more from me 
I am old and my womb barren 
All that you see is all that I am 
They have found my hidden gardens 
And cloned its fruits and animals 
They have destroyed my skies 
And polluted my oceans of blood 
Leaving me weakened I can 
Barely keep hope alive for the future 
My body is being striped of nourishment 
As my soldiers are being cut down 
Their roots ripped from my bosom 
All that you see is all that is left of me 
My children I am sorry, but these humans 
Have wounded me greedily…

    Nice, I was driving in the middle of no where once and suddenly there where train tracks. I wondered how much the earth hurt when we put them up.
