Mother Earth

This Earth – she is our Mother.

She nourishes us, provides for us, and gives herself for us.

Like hungry infants, we nuzzle forcefully into her breast; demanding, seeking and craving the nourishment and security she represents.

And like wilfull todlers, we demand more and more; for what is hers is ours, and we know she will never deny us.

Eventually, she will crumble under the weight of our demands; such is her love for us.

And only then, when we are orphaned, perhaps we shall understand her gifts, her sacrifice, and our own destructive greed.

She deserves better.

This Earth – she is our Mother.
