Heartland

The land was beautiful
once.

Paved with lively greens,
it was a playground for wilds.
Life blossomed
once.
Photobucket
And there came
a troop of people,
invaders.

ArrivedPhotobucket with
tractors and bulldozers,
land cleared.

Green floor disappeared,
wilds gone,
life perished.
Photobucket
One vehicle,
two vehicles,
three vehicles,
endless of vehicles landed.

Landed nothing but,
a truck of waste;
a truck of trash;
a truck of sins;
and a truck of hatreds.
Photobucket
The land was a pain.

Paved with deadly soil,
it was a grave for wilds.
Life ached.
Photobucket
And there came
a troop of people,
saviours.
Photobucket
Arrived with
compassion and affection,
land revived.

Spirited ground,
smiley wilds,
life grinned.
Photobucket
One lawn,
two shrubs,
three bushes,
the land is back.

Back with,
a family of ant,
a family of butterflie,
a family of bird,
and a family of entity.
Photobucket
The land is beautiful
now.

P.S This piece is inspired by a park that i usually go for a walk. It was a landfill site before, which now turned into a beautiful park, perfect for a walk and a peace of mind.

I like this idea of change-- what was once a site for something unpleasant has turned to something beautiful. If only changes like that happened all the time and not the other way around. ;-)

ps

Chadwick Tyler is amazing.
