Parricide

By Quietus

We are mere infants,
Living in our mother's womb.
Our mother is Earth,
Both dangerous and beautiful.
Her fury takes the lives of her children,
But her children suckle her dry.

She's home to many creatures,
All derived from stardust.
Mother Earth gave us the perfect home,
She made us thrive and grow.
Everything she ever did,
She did for the creation of us.

Every part of our mother is alive,
Connected and intertwined.
We take her for granted,
And we destroy our kin.
As children of mother Earth,
We must do better.

Mothers always die,
And ours will take us with her.

Author's Note:

Just a little "save the earth" moment. I recently watched this documentary series called One Strange Rock and it really struck a chord with me. It was a really interesting show, so check it out if you have Netflix.
