Dear Mama,

Mama, I promise you,

My siblings and I, we promise you

to learn

to change

to succeed

d

Mama, you raised us:

You get what you give, a recycled wisdom

Blame is faulty, responsibility is growth

Change is natural, needed, noble

d

So Mama, we remembered you.

Mama, we listened.

And now we are changing

now we are doing

now we are leading

d

Mama, I promise you,

My sibling and I, we will heal you.

Now you are dying

But soon you will heal.

 

Love,

A Letter Per Person

Dear Mama,

9 Mother Nature pt.2
Image from The Art of Summer Rae.

Dear Mama,

Mama, I thank you.

My siblings and I, we exist because of you

live because of you

grow because of you

thrive because of you.

.

Mama, you never give up:

You light up the sky, brighten our lives

You run your fingers through our hairs, on our skin

You wave and sing, encouragingly, lovingly

.

But Mama, we forgot you

Mama, we lost sight.

And now you are crying

now you are seething

now you are dying.

.

Mama, I thank you.

My siblings and I, we broke you.

And now you are dying

But Mama, now we change. 

Love,

A Letter Per Person

Dear Mama

Mother Nature pt.1
Image from eWallpapers.

Dear Mama,

Mama, I am so sorry.

My siblings and I, we ignored you

abandoned you

mistreated you

destroyed you

d

Mama, you taught us:

“Don’t smoke, it destroys your lungs and others’ too.

Don’t litter, a clean home is your welcome and others’ too.

Don’t bully, lives matter – yours and others’ too.”

d

But Mama, we didn’t listen.

Mama, we didn’t care

And now you are choking

now you are crying

now you are dying

d

Mama, I am so sorry.

My siblings and I, we made you sick

And now you are dying

And now we are next

Love,

A Letter Per Person
