The land lay parched,
The river had dried up,
Trees withered and died,
People had an air of sorrow.
They turned the land into a city,
Didn’t pay heed to elders words,
Millennia of lessons lay forgotten,
Overtaken by greed and blindness.
They forgot the land and what she gave,
The land that was one generous,
Was stripped her of heart and soul,
When hunger became unbearable,
When life became intolerable,
Memory did return about the land;
That it was she, who helped them survive
and not the other way around.
That quote/prophecy showed up in my FB page at the correct time inspiring me to write this piece.
