This poem brought me to tears. Thank you Annie.

Congratulations on winning the 2017 prize Annie.

I hope you have kept writing and will enter the 2019 competition. The Crocodile Prize needs as many writers and poets as possible to keep it going.

The line in your poem, "Nature seems to agree", is a very interesting concept. I wonder what you are suggesting. Perhaps Nature is finally abandoning humanity as a lost cause?

Minor comment. Maybe instead of "While the old weeps in pain" and "The old is still weeping" substitute "While the elder weeps in pain" and "The elder is still weeping". Alternatively substitute "the old one" for "the old". Makes the tense sound better.
