I Am Mother

Things are not always what you expect.
As I look back and remember, there was a harmony that used to be.
A time when only what was needed was taken, and always more given in return, it meant something.
Life should be simple as it once was, with harmony, balance and peace among all.

I never imagined how things would change, some good and advantageous to all, others bringing greed,ignorance and disease. Slowly, but surely disease it has grown, taken over your minds; out of control!

So self destructive these humans, you are! A clever disguise it is that you wore, but your mask is now slipping and all should take care, it`s easy to see how you rape me and take from me often.

You poison my air, my water and soil: I am dying at your hand; how it hurts! So no more can I do to help you.

So now as my fear is turned to despair, it is clear in my heart as mother of all, that with desperate desire I plead with you all, change must be forthcoming or all will be gone with salvation for none.

So all work together in time I can heal, but you must step up now and no more can you steal. Open your eyes I know you can see, it is all up to you now speak up and be seen. I wont abandon you, I want to be well and live on forever while holding your hand.

I promise you all we can live as one, and be greatly rewarded like you’ve never known. As you smell that clean air and the green grass amuses your ankles, the rain gently falls caressing your faces, the sun it will shine and make rainbows all over, with white cloud races and looks of amazement. The wind it will catch all the sounds that we love, like young children laughing, frogs croaking, birds singing. I believe we can do it, it will be worthwhile, now all stand together and lets face this, united.
