A prompt based poetry about earth
Will never let you down

Mother Earth- you were once admired
But now I know you are tired,
of all the battles that we fight…
Is that why you have turned white?
Or is it the smoke that I see,
instead of the big blue sea?
Or is it the lack of trees
that gave us fresh breeze?
Or is it the pain that you endure
for your children’s future?
Once you were so beautiful, so blue.
And today, I promise to carry you
on my shoulders forever
and will let you down never.
