“Why does the sky cry?”

Why does the sky cry
Drenching the soil with her tears
Why does the sky groan
Deafening our ears with her pain
Why does the sky flash with rage
Blinding our eyes with her wrath

Perhaps it is because we,
Sick, twisted, selfish mankind
Tear at the earth’s flesh,
Stick concrete in her skin,
Choke her air with our smog,
Murder her animals,
Burn her gardens

We do not listen to her sorrow
We ignore her pain
We call her a liar

We destroy the very thing that sustains our life
For pieces of paper
We think we need
To be happy

But tell me this,
What happiness is there
In a world with no air?
