Thank you

Written by: Tanika Cooks

Something beautiful appeared to me
In the form of birds and trees
I said, thank you
While the earth is burning down fires set by careless fiends 
Friendless to the earth
 means nothing but destruction to feed distraction
The rain, acid like and blue
Burns through window pains stuck together with fake glue  
Hail, Mary couldn’t save you
And it all melts creating puddles of past things 
Fuzzy, familiar, and false
High above your head feel the water on your finger tips
The world, it cries 
It cries 
We saw away at its soul
