Tired Earth

Tired earth
muted hues
beneath birds wings
your cries
go unheeded

betrayed by those
who rape your land
your life blood
congealed by  the poisons
you are fed

your vital force
gathers itself
a terrestrial revolution
seeking vengeance
on traiterous stewards

A retribution
without trial
your anger boils over
you shake your skin and
cities crumble

you weep in grief
and flood the land
your breath
shatters mountains

rest from anger
for shortly
peace will return to you

A restoration from
the spirit that caused your birth
at the dawn of time.

You will endure
a fortress of beauty
alive and breathing.
