I am so very sorry. Please forgive me. I don’t mean to hurt you, but you haven’t heard me. All I had left was a few last breaths. I have exhaled the most potent message I had left.
You haven’t noticed tears streaming from my glaciers Or when I’ve stamped my feet shaking and creating fissures. I’ve delivered destructive weather, seemingly so unfair Billions in damage, language I hope you’d hear.
All I’ve ever wanted is to love and support you. Wrap you in comfort, safe from the night dew To Nourish with sustenance the vessel of your soul For black or white, rich or poor, the young or the old.
Oceans and streams, majestic mountains to explore Sunsets, rainbows, flowers and colors galore. These are my gifts for your time on my land Given from a heart bursting with love and an open hand.
But now I can barely flex a muscle. My light, my air, fades slowly from your hustle and bustle I am ladened with smog, clinging to stay afloat Please someone help me; I’m on life support.
As my sight grows dim and I can hardly hear Am I delirious, or is there a whiff of fresh air? My God! Melodic sounds of birds that sing and a sneaking glimpse of the sun! Hallelujah and thank you, my healing has begun!
