Old poem

I was cleaning my Google Drive a couple of days back, and found this poem, which I wrote in VII grade. This doesn't necessarily mean that I write better now. :p

That was my first and last attempt at poetry. Here it goes.

The plight of Earth

Started with a blob of nebula
involving thousands of celestial phenomena
A gift of God to nature
which took long to mature

No land no sea only fire

I was like this, can you admire?
Full of lava and hot matter
Which left everything to shatter

This continued for millions of years

which wet God's eyes with tears
His tears were not in vain
As he sent them to me in the form of rain

As more time progressed

my surface got significantly improved
It became cooler
And contained inorganic minerals as proved by Miller

Life in the form of bacteria appeared

Followed by which, complex ones emerged
And then the grace of God and water
made more and more of them to appear

Ultimately the most dangerous one came

which only cared for their name and fame
Neither dino, nor chimpanzee nor any other living thing
he was the selfish human being.
I took care of them as my children
and supplied them every form of mineral
Also donated all sorts of energy
stored by me since my existence

But those heartless creatures

bared me from my green cover
And also my melting ice caps, for which they are responsible
Can they rejuvenate them again? Is it possible?

They shattered me to fulfill their needs

But I can't forgive them for their deeds
This is a clear betrayal from their side
which might result in their loss.

This is my message to all humans

that wake up and save me.
Because if my present is worse
How can your future be better?
