She came into Being,
Knowing well her duties.
The sacrifices she would endure,
As she birthed Life,
One right after another.
She fed us, She clothed us, She provided us water.
She let us do as we pleased.
She held a grounding rod deep within her core,
So that we could be free to fly as high as the mind could conceive.
She grew beauty from her fertile soils,
Constantly balancing the homeostasis of all living things.
Her goal is our survival,
As she continues to feed and water the life that lives upon her.
She asks only one thing in return for all she does for us,
That we learn in this school of life.
Learn how to let go of anything that prevents our emotional growth.
Learn how to live in oneness with all she created.
Learn how to respect all the life that grows from her womb.
And how do we give back to this beautiful lady?
We play upon her, She smiles and cleans up the mess.
We rest in the winter, She busily prepares for new growth of Spring.
We find reason for dispute, She blows a breeze of peace.
We ravage her forests, She grows new seedlings.
We contaminate her air, She works overtime for renewal.
Will we ever see with our hearts what she has done for us?
She lives and breathes for us.
She is Life, She is Substance, She is Spirit.
She is our Mother Earth.
She loves you with such Nurturing Love.
She soothes you with her nature.
She lives because you live!
