The world we come from has no green,
wherever you may cast your eyes
only a barren desert land
shall come and greet them with a vicious smile.
She was different long ago,
greener, softer and heavenly,
so we have heard and read as kids
in the fading tales of history.
That was before the humankind
or our venerable ancestors
took up nature’s rein in their hold
and killed her fast within a thousand years.
Being a mother choked to death at her children’s hands,
mother earth has become an arid desert land.
