A message from a friend in Spain called Vivienne

The earth whispered but you did not hear
The earth spoke but you did not listen
The earth screamed but you turned her off

I was not born to punish you
I was born to awaken you
The earth cried out for help
Massive flooding - but you didn't listen
Burning fires - but you didn't listen
Strong hurricanes - but you didn't listen
Terrifying Tornadoes - but you didn't listen

You still don't listen to the earth when -
Ocean animals are dying due to pollutants in the waters
Glaciers are melting at an alarming rate
Severe drought
You didn't listen to how much negativity the earth is receiving
Non-stop wars
Non-stop greed

You just kept going on with your life
No matter how mmuch hate there was
No matter how many killings daily
It was more important to get that latest iPhone 
  than worry about what the earth was trying to tell you

But now I am here
And I've made the world stop in its tracks
I've made YOU finally listen
I've made you take refuge
I've made you stop thinking about materialistic things
Now you are like the earth

You are only worried about YOUR survival
How does that feel?
I give you fever ... as the fires burn on earth
I give you respiratory issues ... as pollution fills the earth's air
I give you weakness ... as the earth weakens everyday
I took away your comforts
Your outings
The things you would use to forget about the planet and its pain
And I made the world stop ...
And now ...

China has better air quality
Skies are clear blue because factories are not spilling pollution into the earth's air
The water in Venice is clean because the gondola boats that pollute the water are not       being used
YOU are having to take time to reflect on what is important in your life
Again I am not here to punish you ... I am here to AWAKEN you ...
When all this is over and I am gone ... Please remember these moments

Listen to the earth
Listen to your soul
Stop - Polluting the earth
Stop - Fighting amongst yourselves
Stop - Caring about materialistic things
Start - Loving your neighbours
Start - Caring about the eartth and all its creatures
Start - Believing in a Creator

Because next time ... I may come back even stronger ...
