The Earth Is Our Mother

Here is a poem that I wrote almost two years ago based on the 23rd psalm from the Bible.

The Earth is our Mother

The Earth is our Mother, We shall not want.
She provides us with green pastures,
and leads us beside clean waters.
She restores our souls.
She guides us to the path of good stewardship
for the sake of what is right.

Even though we walk through the darkness of pollution,
we will fear no evil,
for she is with us.
Her Sun and Wind will comfort us.

She prepares a table before us with
the organic fruits of her bounty.
And though we have been anointed with oil,
The Gulf will not overflow.
Surely she will show goodness and mercy
for the mistakes we have made.
And future generations will
dwell within her, forever.
