"Aftermath," a poem on Humanity and our Lack of Compassion for Mother Earth!!

    The Aftermath
       ©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

            There is a strong division of human culture
          That our eyes can see— Such, division
          Has long existed, throughout antiquity.

            Barbarism has since arisen,
          Suppressed since
          The beginning of time—
          Buried deep within
          Mother Earth’s core
          By the Great Divine;

          Fragmented pieces of herself,
          Her Ethereal-self,
          Her Evil-self,
          Her Resurrected-self,
          Her Divine-self,
          Her One-half of a
          Divine Whole, self.

          Cosmic fragments
          Of galaxies unknown,
          Throughout the Universe,
          Crystalline fragments roam;

          Earth and other planets
          It’s new haven– Cravin
          To be united once again;
          Cultures, divided
          By the entity, we call skin,
          Barbarism serves as
          An evil reminder of
          Our ancestors' sins.

          Do we dare live out the aftermath,
Once again?!
