Planet in Gloom

She stood staring at the trees,
While the leaves crumbled. 
Group of men came with weapons 
To bring trees down.

She stood staring at the trees,
While her mind raced back to days,
Where she watered and nurtured trees
Just like her own children.

She stood staring at the trees,
Unable to move in bewilderment.
Tears rolled down her cheeks,
 As she saw huge vehicles joined armed men.

She stood staring at the trees
Until last one was brought down
 And there were no longer any trees
                 Wondering how this could lead to development of city

She stood there pondering
Amidst so many questions.
Has greed for money tied a blindfold on their wisdom,
Insight and conscience?

Have they shunned their ears
Or have turned their
Hearts into stone?
It has closed every single door of love and kindness.

She stares at the dark sky, 
Eyes closed as her heart ached.
She was sure mother nature wont bestow mercy, 
And the planet will be doomed soon.
