My Prayer For Life! - Poem by Queeny Gona

Can you hear me dudes?
It’s me, your close buddy;
I have been your close inmate from generation to generation
Gave you all that you needed
But; what have you done to me?
Why such a poor treatment to me?
Wore me, tore me and what not?
Till I could no more tolerate.
I am bleeding throughout my body!
Tsunami, Earthquakes, Floods, Global warming
Is all out of it!
Beg you now, to save me
Treat me with Afforestation and the like
Stop Polluting; save me
At least from today, put an end to the bleeding!
Avoid Catastrophe,
In return I will protect you.
A prayer to the people,
By a Crippled; Earth!

    I appreciate the originality of your poems. Reading them is like a breath of fresh air, because you are not one of those poets who get stuck within the frame of some conventions and topics, and just remain attached there for the rest of their careers. I'll tell you why..Because writing poetry means evolution, too..And because your poetry has a powerful and unstoppable flow. What I like about My prayer for life! is that is structured like a monologue, spoken in a modern manner, and aims to raise awareness of the challenges the Earth faces daily, due to people's ignorance. The Earth, as depicted in your poem, is both vulnerable and wise, but it can also turn revengeful. There will always be an ancestral chord, linking people to it. I rated your poem a 10 +++ (Report) Reply
