Favorite Quote:
"In order to write something, you have to risk making a fool of yourself." Anne Rice

We are the flowers,
Our earth is the tree.
Our roots are buried
And entwined with her.
She is our mother-
We are merely servants,
Children, and carefree-
She is unceasing for us.

She gives as we take,
She heals,
And we break.

We slumber and we are nurtured
And we renew,
But our mother is never serene.
She is always working,
Always giving,
Always hoping that we might thank her.
Oh how the flowers affect the treeā€¦
She is unceasing for us.

She gives as we take,
She heals,
And we break.

She could die from no repose,
She could shrivel and wither.
(Fault of the flower)
If only we gave a little:
A new seed, a cleaner soil,
She could sleep.
(Yet we still suck the nectar)
But as our mother
She is always unceasing for us.

The author's comments:
My inspiration was quite simple.I was frustrated with the way humanity has treated our mother earth and I thought that if I wrote how I felt, I would feel better. I thought if I related our earth to our mother, people would think differently. I thought of how moms are always exhausted and trying to take care of their children, trying to make them happy without a thank you or kind deed in return. Thats how the world uses nature. For ex., the line "Oh how the flowers affect the tree" means that we as people are together ruining our only earth. What we decide to do together is so important for our future because we truly affect our environment.
