I am the Earth

(On Earth Day)

Let me tell you dear humankind

You continue to exploit me, and you would find

If you do not treat me with care, you would not thrive

I sustain every creature that is alive

With your ingenuity you have created this anthropocene

In every natural process you’ve tried to intervene

In a way that benefits no one but your creed

Me and my other inhabitants are subservient to your greed

But you’re disrupting the ecological balance delicate

That had taken billions of years to create

You have intelligence unparalleled of course

But even with that, you cannot force

The natural world to dance to your tune

Learn to respect it, this warning cannot come too soon

I am in existence to distribute my bounty

Among all my inhabitants, not just humanity
