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
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.
