PLEA OF OUR BELOVED RIVER
Like man, the river also has a soul.
So we must love, and nurture it;
Because like us, it also cries and hurts,
When its wealth and beauty are abused.
My fellow human, do you not see and feel?
It suffers hardship and pain because of your negligence.
Do you not hear its wailing and pleading?
That you stop the abuse and cruelty you are committing.
Come, look at its appearance.
The former clear and clean water,
Today is black and a lot of garbage.
Its beauty is gone, ruined by your wickedness.
So please my fellow human, open your eyes,
As well as your ears, heart and mind.
See, feel and listen to the plea of our beloved river!
You still have time to repent and fix the things you broke.
