Peeling Sidewalks

concrete concrete
it’s all I see
from worn down roads
to peeling sidewalks
to buildings scraping the sky

the quiet valleys we once knew
are departed
the lush forests we once held to
are crippled
the glassy rivers we drank from
are wasted
the air we still breath
is choked.

so tell me
why must we kill the beauty
which this earth has given us?
