I am a writer, poet, and mother who is passionate about people, animals, politics and our planet.  I wrote this poem two years ago as I struggled to comprehend what we are doing to the Earth...our home.  

 

Mother Nature’s Wrath  

by Asherah

 

As we continue down this path

We observe Mother Nature’s wrath.

 

Her body is ravaged

As we annihilate and damage

 

All that she is

All that she was

All that she could be.

 

We tear her apart

And rip open her heart.

 

We pollute her seas

Unable to breathe

She screams from beneath

And erupts.

 

Hurricanes explode

Earthquakes unfold

A site to behold.

 

Mother! Oh please!

We’ve got no where to flee.

Destined to be

Planetary refugees.

Thank you! Yes, I believe the Earth is truly our paradise--it's so terrifying to see what we are doing to her.

Hello, Asherah,

I love this poem! This resonates with me so much because our country is considered a “laboratory of disasters”. Almost brings me to tears on what we’re doing to our environment. I love your imageries. It reminds us that just as we hate abuse on women, we must also be mindful that we are abusing an important woman, Mother Nature.

Please keep posting your work here. Welcome to World Pulse!

Thank you! Exactly--we seem to neglect and abuse those things we need and rely on the most!

You're welcome, Asherah. Yes, you were able to convey that message through your powerful poem. Please continue to write more. <3

Hi Asherah,

Welcome to World Pulse:-) Thanks for sharing your powerful, and very sad and honest poem. I hear you, and I'm concerned for our beautiful planet, too:-) May there be more resources and innovations to heal and clean her today than there are reasons for her to weep and bleed...

Looking forward to seeing more stories from you. Hope you're having a good day!

Thank you! It gives me hope to see so many youth raising their voices, using their intellect, and talents to try to solve the problems we and previous generations have created.

Hi Ahsarah,

I think your poem is amazing. It really forces the reader to think about what they can do to help, even if it is just a little thing or habit that we change. Thank you.

Thank you Wendy! I feel so helpless...I worry about what we are leaving behind the children. I hope my poetry resonates with some to create change.
