Spiritual and Inspirational poetry that touch the heart and soul, and provoke the mind.

LIFE GOES ON

The Bees don’t need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Bees…
The Seas don’t need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Seas!
The Grasses will go on growing
The Trees, their leaves renew..
The Sun will keep on burning
Also, the falling Dew…

The Creatures don’t need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Creatures..
Living things don’t need Mankind
But Oh! What they do teach us!
They don’t destroy their Habitat
They don’t act like they are God!
All Life lives in harmony
From the Air, the Seas and Sod!

The Sky doesn’t need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Sky
The Rains don’t need Mankind
But no Rain…All would die…
Living Waters feed all Life..
No matter what the form
Without Water all would perish
We need the Rain, the Storm!

Mankind needs the whole of Life
But Life needs to be respected…
Mankind needs to learn one thing
That ALL LIFE is connected…
Each Life depends on others
In Living, Dying, Birth….
We must take care of our Mother
She is our ONLY EARTH!!…..

    Very true, we need mother nature to live. Our sustenance is dependent on our surrounding. We often forget this truth but when we value this truth, we coexist with the environment peacefully.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Kinge. I agree fully with you. A lot of people in our modern societies have lost the connection to the earth….when children in large cities are asked were their food comes from they reply “from the supermarket”!
