Nature's Sorrow - Poem by Jixin Gao

The soft sandgrains on the beach.
Pressed against my feet.
I feel nature.
I feel its touch,
its warmth.
It covers me like a cocoon,
Like I belong,
To nature too.

But I looked from head to toe-
The extravagant clothes and jewellery
And at-
the floating plastics on the sea enjoying
a great ride at nature's expense

Do we belong to nature,
Or-
Do they belong to us?

Just at that time,
Nature cried,
Its tears drenching me of remorse.

I cried too,
Hot tears mixing with the cold, acidic rain.
But nature couldn't see me,
Enveloped among the dark clouds,
Crying its heart out.
Yet I hope,
Among the skies,
that it could least feel it.

    Brilliant. My view is we don't belong to it or it to us. We should be symbiant, but mankind continuously fails on the deal. (Report) Reply
