What is the earth? The earth is our mother, With nourishing care she cares for her young. We're children of course and we struggle in her grasp. And as we grow older we figure things out. We can get away with some things. But, some things we can't. Like polluting the seas. We kill all its creatures. And we don't even see. We ignore the obvious. But, what is that. That we're killing our mother. Mother Nature at that. She cries and she moans. For her earth is dying. But, here we're living, thriving and surviving. Is it fair that we're thriving, Is it fair that she is dying. Is it bad that she knows we won't go on to surviving? When the earth gets too hot or the winters get too cold. What will we do when, Mother Nature releases her hold?
