EARTH’S CHILD

I am a Child of Earth
For my Flesh is of Dust
And my Brothers are like me
And together we must…
Live!

So many are shot for money
Slaughtered out of Greed
My Brothers killed for Vanity
Disappear with alarming speed…
Gone!

Their voices through the Ages speak
And I hear them in the night
And tears stain my saddened heart
For my Brothers cannot fight….
Die!!…

Oh God! What can one do
To awaken all the Earth?
To teach all Peoples everywhere
Of the fragile, precious worth of all
Life?…

What words should be spoken?
What words now must be said?
Just what action taken
Before all Creatures end up dead?
Extinct!!……

We are Children of the Earth
All Life is of the Sod
And our Brothers are like us
Each one is loved by God…
Sacred!!…..
