The Earth’s Abuser

Who would have thought that
we would have come to this place
and in such haste?
We loved the mountains, the valleys,
the rivers, the seas.
Everything was meant to please.
We thought it will be this way always
and now we are told
everything is going sideways.
Never thinking the earth,
by our hands, was ill-fated
we fell in love and procreated.
Now we fear for our children’s future
because we humans are the earth’s abuser.
