the earth is wounded, our planet needs to heal.

it’s crying out, crying out in fear,

in pain, in loss, in agony. bursting into tears.

is peace and solace, just a mere dream?

can we never walk hand in hand,

shoulder to shoulder, alike, equal?

will we never live like brothers and sisters?

it’s the earth, it’s asking you questions.

will you open up your home? your heart?

your mind? will you be kind?

humanity isn’t dead.

we all feel it,

pulsing, running through

our body, beating hard in our chests.

do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Krishna,

they all taught us the same.

yet, some think they’re the ones to blame?

the earth is wounded

and only we can heal it.
