Shattered Childhood.

Dedicated to all the innocent people losing their lives daily in war areas.

My dear child, living in war, I have heard your cries; I am

Mother Nature, the essence of the earth that

you live in, the creator of life, the mother of

all instincts. My silence has often been mistaken

for defeat, and lack of sympathy from my side. I

am sad to inform you that despite all the dark

ages my land has witnessed, this has yet to be

the worst and cruelest nights of all.

These foolish humans have not heard your cries,

sadly because an emotional plea or cry is a

message too deep for their shallow minds to

interpret, they have forgotten the essence of

humanity and giving… They have forgotten that

this is beyond any act of peace; it is cruelest

act of murder and it is being done intentionally.

I have existed for millions of years before any

religion, or man.

I am breaking my silence to tell you, my dear, do

not fret over your life, your existence is never a

mistake, and you scare these dark forces with

your inner light. They are the cowards; they

fear a little body that holds the boldest soul and

the loudest cries. I want you to know whatever

happens no force on this earth can change the

fact that at the end you belong with me.

I control and witness the death and

rebirth of each flower, plant, and tree after the

most rigid storms. I have watched over a million

flowers bloom each spring, and baby this is your

storm. Don’t give up, I’ll be here to embrace

you when everything else fails, don’t let your

soul give in to despair your spring will come one

day.

I will be your soldier when these savages come to

take you. You are too pure anyway to be a

human being… come with me and live in my soils,

I will always love and cherish you. Watch how my

animals and plants will teach you the true

meaning of beauty, love, and sacrifice.

Your memory will never be lost in vain because

your flesh will add innocence and purity to all

my seasons and lands, even the air. Your love

for life will live in me forever… You may decide

to fall down as a leaf in autumn, even as rain or

snow in winter… You can flow freely in my rivers

in spring or even bloom as a flower. You can play

in my clouds and fly up to my heavens.

Your spirit can wander through all my season

breezes so freely and effortlessly, your heart

will be in the sunrays at dusk and you can

gently bathe in my sunset.

Forget humanity…forget your body….Forget

these cruel savages, because at the end they

will have no place here after they go, they shall

vanish in a dark deep hole in the universe, and

only you will remain.

Don’t be afraid of death, don’t be afraid when

it’s time to go, think of me, and my promises

what is waiting ahead. Your end of living will

only be a new beginning with me. These fools will

think they have killed you; the truth is you shall

outlive them all for millions and millions of years

to come, just like many innocent souls have lived

in me for a million years before.

Therefore, when your time will come, take a deep breath, close your eyes in

peace, and think of me…Think of my light and I

will embrace you.

You are after all a child of nature, and I will

never leave you.

    Wow !! This does say a lot about war and what it does to the innocent children of the world. This is not right especially using poison gas on your own people mostly children. We have to set the world straight as soon as possible. Thanks Zeina for this post !!

    A perfect depiction of how the minds of humanity turns, a lot of winners suffer because losers go out and fight to try and become winners of a losing battle. But I like the quote you put in there, it’s not the end, it’s a new beginning. I say that a lot myself. And I like the symbolism of this, though it appears dark, you have to look for the light and I see that the innocence is being rescued by Mother Nature which is beautiful in a sense. The beauty will be there long after the ugly has left. The childhood was shattered but the rebirth will be great. Nice write! 🌹
