I was blind
When I cut down trees for my luxuries
When I threw garbage into the river
When I polluted the rivers
When I destroyed “my” mother and
built my comforts

I was anosmic
When I drove many cars and polluted the air
When I spilt out all the air from
the industries
When I made “my” life comfortable
With air conditioners and refrigerators

I was deaf,
To all the noise I created to make
“my” life pleasurable
I drilled into big rocks and
quarries to create “my” comfort

But I WAS NOT DUMB!

I could have said a “No” to everything
Which hurt my mother
But I never said
I was selfish about my luxuries

My mother never said anything
I carried on hurting her
ALAS!
She opened her “third eye”
Just a blink and
There we are
Hopeless, helpless
Standing with a teary stare
Being a spectator of the
“Beautiful circus show”
That my mother performed

Now, I can see everything
Hear everything
and feel everything

As I drop a repenting tear into
The ocean of pain
Oh, Mother, I am sorry
I closed my eyes and prayed.

Yet I pray for the wings, while I'm still drowning.
