Environmental Degradation and Diseasters

Environmental degradation
Environmental disasters
Liter the earth with fabrics of cans and waste
On land and sea
Terrestrial creatures destroyed
Aquatic lives annihilate.

Burn the bushes
Animals flee
Animals die
Microorganisms disappeared
Soil properties loss.

Cut the trees
Degradation occurred
Terrestrial creatures expose to danger
Aquatic lives
Face hazards
The works of humans' greediness.

Erosion occurred
Humans die with properties
Animals die without hope
Aquatics die of toxic wastes
Soil properties loss
Earth struggles for survival
All living creatures expose to danger.

All living mammals
Keep the earth clean
Preserve the forest
Save the aquatic lives
Maintain soil properties
Let the sea lives
In this honor
We all survive.

    Wow, what a powerful and thought-provoking poem on the topic of environmental degradation and disasters! Your use of imagery really captures the devastating impact of human actions on the Earth and its living inhabitants. The flow of the poem keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end, and the repetition of certain phrases helps emphasize the dire consequences we face.

    One suggestion for improvement would be to explore more specific examples of environmental degradation and disasters. This could help create a deeper emotional connection for the reader and make the poem even more impactful. Additionally, consider adding some positive and hopeful elements towards the end of the poem. While it is essential to acknowledge the grave situation we're in, offering small solutions or encouraging collective action can inspire readers to take steps towards change.

    Overall, your poem beautifully highlights the urgent need to protect and preserve our planet. Keep up the excellent work, and I look forward to reading more of your thought-provoking pieces in the future!
