"Don't Just Read , Imagine"
~@# Mother Nature @#~
The galaxy is a beautiful place , stars and nebulas brighten the whole infinite world.Everywhere , theres secrets and dangers awaiting.But in the midst of a thousand stars and planets , lies a planet with the power to contain life.Unlike other planets , it doesn't destroy life but support life.Its like diamond inside a giant rough rock , hard to find but the value is limitless.The planet was named , Earth.
Earth is a beautiful planet filled with life that nowhere could be seen.It was empty at first , with nothing but rain and microscopic life forms in the ocean.The ocean is a vast and dangerous place , filled with undying mysteries.On land , it was deserted , nothing but wind blowing.In the vast dry land , rooted a plant.A growing plant with two leaves coming out.It was the first plant to grow on land.Not for long , it grew into a tree filled with spores getting ready to fly away and grow on a single spot to spread life.After a few days , the spores flew.They flew to unimaginable distance to seek a perfect spot to grow , once they found one , they would land on that spot and grow.
Millenia passed , life in the sea evolved and went on land.By the time they stepped on land , plants were everywhere.Lush green fields , beautiful forests.The rivers that ran through them and the beautiful sun that shone on them.The tree from before grew into a gigantic size , it was in the middle of a lush forest.Its like a mother to all round it , mother nature.Such amazing life , yet things became different.
Millenia after Millenia , trange new beings appeared.They were humans , creatures like apes but smarter and more cunning.They lack physical strength but they were smart , they used things around them as weapons or to their advantage. They discovered fire and started to gather firewood from trees.One by one , cutted down to pieces.Mother nature felt the pain but it can't do anything , only to see her children slowly getting slaughtered by humans.
It soon reached the 19th century , the technological advancement of humans advanced greatly.They can travel through water and air.Their weapons improved , their medications improved.Their minds improved and so does the politics.Mother nature was surrounded by blocks and metals.All the trees around her were gone , only buildings and factories.She was treated as a playground , swings were pinned on her branches to let children play.She was in pain.But she was happy , she seen laughter and love.Couples would spend their nights under the tree.Admiring such a magnificent being.
Not for long , war broke between countries.Men and women of different countries opposed each other , never ending slaughterings and killings.The city was destroyed ... everywhere was gun sounds and bombs flying through the air.Mother Nature cried throughout the whole day while watching people around her dying.She wondered why beings of the same species fighting each other.Why can't love be used all around the world instead of war.She was confused.Humans are dangerous creatures , how often we say bugs are gross but in truth....We are the monsters.
Governments of countries all around the world ordered their scientists to experiment on nuclear weapons.Soon , a nuclear holocaust appeared.Countries all around the world launching nuclear warheads at other countries.Soon , everything was lost and every life started to die.Water became tainted of radiatons.Skies became dark grey with never ending soot falling down.Trees withering and slowly dying.Mother nature was bald , she had no leaves.Every leaves she had either died or fell off.She seen people dying and starving of hunger.Radiation killed everyone all around the world.Great cities now in ruins and fishes all floated to the top with their bellies up signifying their dead.
Everywhere , life has been destroyed.Mother Nature stood there alone , watching her children's body on the ground all black and dried up.She was on a verge of death and was crying every water she had in her body.Once a magnificent being , now a small dying tree.Her eyes were heavy and her body was starting to fall.She fell to ground with a loud thump.Before she died , she closed her eys and looked upon the wasteland where she once stood proud along with her children one last time.She thought of the times when humans were in loving peace and all was in harmony.She thought of the times before humans exist , everywhere beautiful and inspiring.But now infront of her , only dust and debrises.She closed her eyes along with a single teardrop...and passed away.
After million of years , Earth was still the same.But in a blink of hope , in the middle of a wasteland.On top of a little dirt and some trash.Lies a little bud , growing....
"Earth will go on , with or without humans.We call animals monsters and bugs gross but we are the real monsters.We are killing Mother Nature and the planet we called Earth as our home.If only we change."
