We are meant to compliment each other. They are called my Custodian for a reason. I gave them whatsoever they ask of me. At first it was fun living with them. Later what was meant to be a union became exploitation. I couldn't cope. I cried out but no one heard. I can't breath.
I was bored
I took a walk round the world and saw my heads - the trees being cut off. For "human use" they say. Trees turn into money and tissues. They cut me down, burn me into coal, Slice me into logs. The hairs on my head -the leaves were used as herbs to cure their sickness. They breath what i breath out. With all these things i do you'd think they will handle me with care. But that isn't the story. Every day i lose another head. I can't breath.
I decided to walk a little further and saw my necks- the animals being hunted down for their horns, hides, meat, skin, hair etc. The farther i stretch my neck away from them the more excited they get. Since my habitat has turned into cities with skyscrapers i decided to go farther into the deep forest but that didn't stop them from coming for me. I'm choking- i can't breath.
With sadness i move away and took a quick look at my stomach- the rivers and seas the smell that greeted me made me take two steps back. They pour dirt of all sort into me, they push me back, exploited me. Most of my intestine -fishes no longer existed. What did i do to deserve this? What have i done?. This pain is too much. I need help - i can't breath
If other parts of the body isn't functioning, my ever graceful legs -atmosphere will never be cut off by man. Or so i thought. I took a final view at my legs but was shocked to see what they do to it every day. They burn fossil fuel and bushes, releases harmful substances in it each day. This affected me and i wept but they were oblivious to me tears. Maybe i should go to the farmers they should understand me better. What i saw when i got to them stopped me in my track. My legs are gone.
In annoyance i took my decision. Call me heartless, call me wicked, call me vengeful or whatsoever ever. I no longer care. I will show them i can also be brutal. Oh!. They are planning to relocate to Mars?. Let's wait and see if they if i wouldn't have destroyed them before they find a way to, if ever they will. Please, don't blame me, they called this upon themselves when they were cutting off my head (trees). My neck (animals) wasn't left out- they cut it off. My stomach (seas) aches from too much dirt pour into it- i can't stomach it any longer. My legs(atmosphere) are no longer what they used to be all thanks to them, they tarnished it with no remorse.
But i remember what we had, what we shared, the memories and decided to give them another chance. Let me warn them with diseases, global warming, rise in sea level, decrease in sea ice , climate change etc. Hopefully they will learn and make amends!
Thanks for reading!🤗🤗🤗
This is my entry for the weekly prompt by @JonicaBradley titled "Nature". I went through so many articles on Nature and realised how important the Environment is to us. We need it to survive. Yet we neglect our duties as custodians of the earth. Our activities each day destroys it. We cut down tress without replacement, hunt down animals, burn bushes, pour dirt in the sea etc
We need all hands on deck to correct this. I'm sure you will say "At least we are planning on going to mars". Please let me ask you these questions-
"Is staying in mars possible?"
If yes then "Do you think everyone will go there, or only a selected few?"
" will you be among the selected few?"
" Won't we destroy mars the same way we are destroying mother earth?"
If the answer to the first 3 question is "No" then you need to reconsider your ways. Let's save mother earth together.
Thanks for reading once again!.

Saving our nature needs the collective effort of mankind. Then again, it should start within ourselves. If everybody has the discipline to be responsible for the actions made, everything will be in harmony. Too bad, it'll take a long journey to achieve that.
