As the day started a joyful sun came up in the sky. He was happy that he had made it through another day. The morning
mist covered all the grass, birds were singing on the trees… Just
another day on the Earth. As the day went by the sky started to hear screams coming from the
land. He heard screams coming from China. People were complainig about
workers’ abuse. Sky kept on travelling and as he got to the Middle-East heard screams
of dispair, lost relatives in wars and prayers for peace to arrive. Then he got to Africa and heard screams of famine, of thirst of
water, of diseases that could be erradicated if they had the resources
to do so. In the evening he arrived in America and all he could hear were
screams of anger, people fighting over power in the stock market and
complaining about a dirty sea because of a tremendous oil spill
provocated by terrible human errors. As he got to the Pacific Ocean all he could hear were the animals.
They were really quiet. The sky demanded them why the didn’t complain
about anything at all. The answer they gave him was really disturbing: - Why should we keep on complaining? No matter what we do, humans
keep on destroying themselves and the planet as well. No matter how hard
we protest and try to make things better. No matter how many years we
get on strike. Nothing matters anymore! All we have left is hope. Hope
that one day the human race, will wake up and learn that we all have to
do is live in harmony. Hope that they realize that if they manage the
resources properly there will be more than enough for each and every
living creature on the Earth. Hope that they realize there’s no need to
fight and destroy in order to get what they aim for. Hope that in the
end, they do not lose the hope. And so, the Sky made a pact with the Sun. He would unveil storms and
hurricanes and droughts and cold. That would be the only way humans
would look up in the clouds and make the following reflection: They were
being punished for having acted so badly and if they wanted the Sun
back again they would have to make some serious changes; starting now.
Hi! I'm Helena (elena2 or Fluent Sarcasm from Tumblr).
It is hard to describe myself in 1200 characters. Specially when I think that life is a constant work in progress. I like to daydream and achieve my goals. I like good people and despise evil souls. I feel absolutely in tune with nature. After all, we also are part of this big scheme.
