Mother Earth

Mother Earth is our one and only home

There is nothing like it in the universe

And we all know it

Yet, when our mother calls

We do not hear her plea

We see her tears

Yet, we refuse to see

We know she is very ill

Yet we do not feel the sense of urgency

To take immediate action

To heal and protect her

We are the ones who harmed her

Yet, we pretend that she will live forever

To provide for our every whim

She nourished us

She made us grow

We abused our mother

We took everything from her

Steal her treasures

Ruined her

She could have aged gracefully

But we continue to be blind to see her weep

We are all deaf to hear her call for help

We pretend we are crippled

And chose not to stand up and carry

The burdens our mother carried for us

Our one and only Mother Earth is sick

Our home is in danger

Yet we chose not to defend it

We are given gifts , talents and the will

To make choices

To harm or to heal

To abandon or to defend

To create or to destroy

It is our duty, responsibility and obligation

To care for our one and only home

After all, we only have one Mother
