Oil Spills, Oceans' Cancer


Dark bath for the crystal
the womb that gave birth
to all things that are living
stained and helpless
against the greedy hands
of these sentient beings
ignorant of the fact
that they too came from it
like disease spreading fast
penetrating the ocean’s heart
soon life will be extinguished
what will remain are the scars
of a punctured wound
caused by hungry beasts
beasts that continually
suckling mother Earth's breast
the breast of life
where every living creatures
depend on for sustenance
someday these monsters
hopefully be able to think
and realize that
there is only one Earth
once exhausted and destroyed
can never be replenished.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
