Our Earth

Our Earth
Alive, allowing
Aging, Anticipating

Our Earth
Breathing, being
Bargaining, begging

Our Earth
Persisting, providing
Panting, pleaing

Our Earth
Whispers, whimpers
For help

Our Earth
On the verge of life
Will we pull the plug?

Our Earth
Begs for rest
For restoration
For respect

Tradition calls the elderly wise and valued

Our Earth is the eldest
Our Earth has seen it all

Why aren't we listening to…

Our Earth
