Earth: The Detainer of SoulsRolling hills and serene lakes,
Thundering storms, and snow flakes,
Blue marble on black velvet sheet,
So beautiful yet so discrete.
Meadows of yellow, forests of green,
Your air is pure, your waters are clean.
Flocks of clouds traverse your sky,
Loud waterfalls your mountains cry.
Countless animals roam your lands,
Winds caress your dunes of sands,
Deep are your oceans, azure are your seas,
There are no souls you won't draw with these.
An elaborate lure you've set us up here,
Inviting the explorer and weary sightseer,
We came here to rest, and beauty to find,
Not surmising we'd end up confined.
You offered us bodies, you entrapped our mind,
You made us admire, and rendered us blind,
We've been listening for thousands of years,
Never realizing we've covered our ears.
We've been here long enough to forget who we were,
All our past lives are smudged to a blur,
You hide our memories each time we die,
With this brutal device you make us comply.
You kept us ignorant, denying reality,
