The Year The Earth Stopped

A year that was full of hope

Became silent in sorrow as humans moped

Life, shattered as they tried to cope

Cries for humanity engrossed

……………………………….

A world that was changed

Everyone struggled through suffering and pain

As for Mother Earth – it gained

A life of renewed faith obtained

……………………………….

A silver lining around the dark clouds

Told stories of how nature roused

The fishes returned to the waters unbound

And the air – the freshness all around

…………………………………….

The earth can finally breathe

Amid the madness it achieved

A life of purity – the eyes couldn’t believe

The true reflection of its lost soul revealed.

The year the earth healed became the year the earth stopped.
