Life on Earth

Crying pitiful face of Earth Wailing beneath the darkened skies Bubbling tears pouring down her saddened eyes Yearning to be freed from troll's cries Still in learning she is, to be debarred from lies! Dark and desolate is her centre Gloomy and dull is her lather Yet, tolerant and adamant is her temper For her call is to be a loving and a doting mother Such a fate she accepted from a tray, Oh so Silver! Enduring the devilish nature of her common kin She bears selflessly with them even if they bask in sin And does her best to give them a life devoid of sores Without reproach, she fulfils her chores Never expecting anything in return for her lost ores! Delightful she was at the time of Creation Distressful she will be at the time of Destruction Graceful she shall be at the time of Rejuvenation Forgiveness she will grant to those enjoyers! For a tender heart she has acquired throughout the years! Crying pitiful face of Earth I pray, have Patience with all Its Worth So that Eternal Life shall flow in Your Soul And dazed shall we all be in Your enthrall Even if Your tender heart with iron is now mold!

    Excellent treatment of earth's woes. I especially like the contrast presented 1st two lines, stanza 4, with the added bonus of line 3, which I believe in with all my heart. Earth and life on it will endure forever -Matthew 5:5
