I speak to you
With a desperate plea,
Listen with your heart to save me,
This ordeal scorches me,
My senses can no longer be,
I’m your abode
My eyes bleed with pain
Seeing centuries of this disdain,
My children losing their soul,
Greed taking its toll,
Weary hearts and minds,
Living in sorrow
The agony is too hard to swallow.
My ears feel a stabbing woe
Warcries wrench my core,
Many a mother lose a womb,
Many a child left to swoon,
The flesh stains my sheath,
Don’t do this to me!
The putrid fetor
I want to deny,
But the adversity just multiplies,
The smoke is killing my insides,
It’s not just the people who die,
The air can no longer support me
This is a catastrophe!
I scream with a mortifying strain
But my cries go unheard in the plain,
My beauty ripped in their ardour,
I’m left bare for their error,
Only in my memories,
Do I know
The sights that were o’ so gold.
The blemishes on my skin
Burn with cries fairly din,
Anger, pain, the multitude,
My rising destruction ensues,
I live a fight forever lost,
Feel my pain
You’ll know I’ve lost.
I know what the future holds
It scares me,
The darkness haunts me now,
The black clouds are nearer now,
Stop this before we cease to be,
I’m your abode
