Earth

What is happening to this earth?

What is happening to this world and all the people in it?

 

My hope dies a little everytime somebody hurts this world.

Whether it’s a bombing in Brussels.

Whether it’s a shooting in Orlando.

Whether it’s killers silencing Paris.

Or Istanbul, Baghdad or Nice.

 

My trust weakens everytime somebody hurts this earth.

Whether it’s not caring about ecological footprint.

Or it’s protecting just the nearest and dearest economy.

Or just not giving a toss about human rights.

Let alone girls in Nigeria.

 

My beliefs die a little everytime somebody hurts this world.

Whether it’s an ambitious spiteful idiot running for president.

Or it’s a mayor being elected by spreading fear.

Or it’s a referendum resulting in a nation opting out of unity.

Ignorantly thinking the old days will return.

 

My spirit breaks a little everytime somebody hurts this world.

Whether it’s a gunman hunting down a Scandinavian island.

Whether it’s a long coated loner shooting Antwerp into shock.

Whether it’s a veteran bombing the American government into pieces.

Or people killing people just because they can.

 

My heart breaks a little everytime somebody hurts this world.

Whether it’s someone calling someone sick just because he’s gay.

Whether it’s someone spitting on someone just because a tone of skin.

Whether it’s someone looking down on someone just because of background.

Or (not) believing in a certain god.

 

Stop hurting my earth. The earth on which I live and whose air I breathe.

The earth to which I shall return in scattered ashes.

I don’t ruin others heavens or here afters. Please don’t ruin mine.

 

There’s enough air to go round. There’s enough strength to save this world.

I miss respect. I miss empathy. I don’t care if I’m being called naive.

I do believe that good will prevail. I don’t want to not believe!
