Mother Goddess

Ire
rising
pain
engorged
filling all aspects
tears
never ending
stand upon the precipice
looking down
vertigo
buffeted with wind currents
let go.
Rage
building
watching
flailing
mankind
destroying
razing
heart breaking
world being……
lands sere
rivers rise
death no longer creeps
full onslaught
hidden in plain sight.
We are lost.
Time has come
reduced to these seconds
choices must be made
fight
or complacent in silence
my heart hurts
like an ostrich
it is easier to bury my head
ignore the truths that are coming
even as the portends
dance before my face.
I have fallen.
I have betrayed.
I have heard her screams
as Mother Earth
tears asunder
lashing with wind
pouring rain
her message to me
not the same
as her message for you.
Hear her
heed her
or time shall come
all will be lost.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
