Amazon Mourning

The greatest natural wonder
This planet has ever seen
Is ailing at the brutal hands
Of destructive human beings

How can we reverse the harm
We've inflicted upon the earth
How can we truly make amends 
To the creatures we often hurt

Far beyond saving ourselves
From inevitable self extinction
Confused as to what is ours
We fail to make the distinction

If we took a moment to realize
What we mistakenly claim as ours
Also belongs to other nations
Those baring undeniable scars

Those we so often disregard
Taken from them are their homes
Their only recourse is suffering
Apathy is all they've been shown

~Camille Rose Castillo 2010
