If Earth Could Speak...

She went to take a bathroom and stared at herself in the mirror. She saw her faded ocean like eyes, and her skin as dry as the desert. Her hay-like hair was sparsely spread about her head and falling out moment by moment. She didn't understand the real damage until she took a closer look and noticed small creatures in her hair. They looked like tiny people walking around, cutting her hair, burning her trees, and polluting her oceans.  They were in her eyes, and hair, and all over her legs and face. She felt sick for the past few weeks but she didn’t take time to slow down.  These things were deteriorating her beautiful body day by day. She tried to repair and rejuvenate herself but the parasitic pests just continued to take all of her resources, leaving her feeling used and unwanted.
