Listen to Me, For the Earth I Plea
You’re draining me dry
and I don’t know why
The water I provide
is meant for you to thrive
You’re taking it from my womb
and creating a tomb
How can Life survive?
There’s more to this Earth
Than your own self worth
Think of the animals, the birds
and the plants on this Earth
You pollute the air with industry and greed
How can you possibly think this is what we need?
You hide your chemicals, pesticides and poop
in the land that feeds you
How can I recoup?
You’re full of disease and beg the Father
Yet you don’t see you are to blame
for Life going up in flames
You strip this Earth of Life
And fill it with disdain.
When the land I gave you
was first sought and found
you trusted me with care
so I could abound.
Now you fill me with poison
and what is the reason?
To make a deposit in your vault of lesions?!
This video is powerful!
We have no more seasons
that make any sense, but
You’re bank account is growing
Are you really that dense?
My tears are dried up,
I can no longer feed the land
Yet you take more from me than Life can withstand.
My purpose is to give Life
Yet you take it away
Do you realize your actions and the effects on today?
My name is Mother Nature
I was put here to give
So many species depend on me to live.
Stop draining me of the Life
That once shone on this Earth.
Your selfish actions provide no worth.
Look at me
look at the Earth
I’m ever so tired, not to mention worn out.
It’s up to you, without a doubt
I need your help to bring new birth
to the Land.
For the Earth I plea, “hold my hand”.
I Would Love For Someone to Put My Words to Music
Please contact me if you can help me spread the word through song.
