Updated on October 31, 2020

Our world is in turmoil. Our Earth is in a state of destruction created by Man's greed and disrespect. What would Mother Nature have to say?

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

“Oh, please!”

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?!

The land is drying up

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

and

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”.

For the Earth I plea, "hold my hand".
