the sun’s not beaming for it hides its radiance

the waves crash no more in protest of our actions

there’s no fish in the coast cause the ocean fails to forgive

she cries out loud but the echoes reach not the surface

but today,

her shores proclaim her pain

her susurrations are heard above the skies

cause our actions are roots of the dearth of her children

today she begs you to show some love

for she is our lifeblood, our food, our medicine

she gives off her warmth as the poles become too cold

she grants us what we can repay her not

so how dare we cause her all these pain

Happy World Environment Day!

The word “actions” from the writing represents (oil spillage, pollution, plastic and other wastes as well as activities that harm our oceans and the world as a whole) while the word “children” represents marine life.
