And when the most cruel beings ever to exist had been wiped out
After destroying their planet and each other,
Stuck in their bubble for a love of greed and destruction
A new world is born.
After millennials of a polluted earth
The sun finally shines through the smoke and dust,
Making the once dirty landscape into a beautiful landscape
Animals then continue their lives in a world that was once theirs.
No more fear of being hunted to extinction
No more habitats being destroyed for human purposes,
Just a silent breeze blowing the once bad things to good things
A fresh new beginning for planet Earth
Thus, a new world is born.
I wrote this short poem because seeing our world being destroyed by our own is truly heartbreaking. Life on Earth is the best gift one could have, to live life to its fullest and to see our world’s wonders is something so great, but at the same time, we do not deserve such a gift if we are to destroy it.
This picture shot by National Geographic photographer Anton Petrus, should remind us all that our planet is beautiful and that we should protect it at all cost.
“It is my actions that determine the future and hope for this generation and the next.”
