"The unexamined life is not worth living" (Socrates)


Your precious, beautiful, cradle of life that is sinful


You give, love, breath and light.

We take, take, take it all.
We rarely think, not of you but of our own



You are life; you birth, anchor and hold


We take, take, and take it all

You are air, water,fire and earth


Your melodic symphonies of sight, sound are beauty

Your magnetic core is heating
The trees, majestic waters, the bright, clear blue is fleeting

The air, the water, the earth is polluting, depleting




Terra your ending, dying, dispersing



We are taking, making, breaking, shattering, destroying
Your heart, your core, your soul


We are leaving, cleaving, cutting you whole



NOT ANYMORE



TERRA


NOT ANYMORE



I will plant a tree
Recycle, Reuse,Refuse temptation to over use

I will turn OFF the LIGHTS
Look at BUTTERFLIES

Take a 7 MINUTE shower
Stay CLEAN, Plant a FLOWER

Turn OFF the tap, the LIGHTS
Will eat APPLES, PEAS, and CARROTS

I will WALK, RUN, and Ride the BICYCLE
Help CLEAN the PARK

Exercise chase FIREFLIES
Make a CHANGE


BE a CHANGE
HOPE for a better World


SHINE a LIGHT over this PANDEMIC quandary.



MY APOLOGIES TERRA
For we are humans with little humanity
We are still finding ourselves in this world of uncertainty


Not yet certain of our role in life



MY APOLOGIES TERRA

For the faults of your children

We are still learning, striving



Hopefully we will grow




Be BETTER,CLEAN,CLEAR






Before it Too LATE


The author's comments:
Mother earth (TERRA) inspired me. I woke up and observed the world we are living in, how we are treating it. As humans we are so obsessed and consumed by our own problems that we rarely take the time to observe others. A majority of us are selfish that a Tragedy must occur for us to think of others. We mistreat everything, people, animals, earth and life and i was sick of it. so that is how this poem was created.
