Crying Earth

Rainy days, they are the worst

Gloomy skies, disheartened sighs

I know the trees, they have a thirst

And to summers end, we'll say goodbye


Thunder in a lightning storm

There are no birds' melodies today

Outside it is too damn warm

A sign of our societies decay

                I hope i'm reading this correctly as a metaphor for green issues.
                Yep our very own society is in decay but there are societies kept completely ignorant of these issues.

                Oh for the ideal world where we are all truly the society of humanity and all we walk among.

                • Christina8

                  Yes it's for green issues....I so appreciate your feedback and your wonderful comments. Thanks DA!!
