A CHAOTIC DREAM

EARTH IN RUINS

I

I had a dream

A dream with God as Chair

Humans screamed their disgust

Plants and trees screamed their pain

Animals screamed life’s unfairness

The earth kept mute

II

Every stakeholder

Looked in earth’s direction

And so earth had no choice but to give a speech

“I suffer, I give and I take

And the cycle continues

What right has anyone to judge me?”

III

Humans said:

“We are born and we have to live

So we turn to the plants”

IV

Plants and trees echo:

“Sadly”

V

Earth retorts:

“And plants and trees 

Are what I give

Even the seas and rivers sit on me”

VI

Humans continued:

“Even so

Why must we suffer

In death and sicknesses?”

VII

Earth said:

“Because nothing is for free

What you take you must replace

If you dig  me like a savage

For your own gain

You must enter at last

To replenish and help feed others”

VIII

God asked what humans wanted

“Immortality”

Was their answer in one voice

IX

Plants and trees sing:

“Freedom to live”

X

The seas which have been quiet all along said:

“Some peace and quiet 

And freedom of sea animals to live

Without fear of humans or their fellow sea livers”

XI

Earth says:

“Then none should henceforth step on me

Sit on me nor dig me

Let me lie in peace”

XII

All the others shout:

“Impossible!”

XIII

God said:

“This cannot be

So look for other solutions”

XIV

But before He finished

War had broken

The earth shook in fury

The seas and rivers splashed everywhere

The trees shouted horrified

Humans shouted for help

Animals tried to clutch on anything

God leaves through the sky

And I struggled through sand, water, animals and fear

Into wakefulness

XV

What a dream!

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
