The rain must fall


whether needed or not;

the sky weeping

all through the night

and all through the day.

The dark burdens

carried by the clouds

falling like teardrops

onto the bosom

of the earth.

Greedy minds

never satisfied,

always plundering 

the vulnerable earth;

and as the years pass by

our beautiful earth

changes, no longer 

the mother we knew;

watching and weeping,

sighing helplessly

at the changes

happening everywhere.

The changes

brought about

by the follies

of mankind...
