Our Earth vs Our World.

Updated on September 26, 2014

Is There A Difference Between Earth and World?

Our Earth is a wonderful place.

The world is not so great.!

The earth yields crops enough for all.

The world will not distribute fairly.

Our earth overflows with beauty,

from fields of flowers.

To majestic mountains.

The world builds concrete jungles.


Billions of humans are caring, loving, and giving.

Yet the world builds weapons to annihilate all.

Guns and bombs and toxic gas....

Our earth was never meant for that.

How could it be? When it bursts with love.?

A lioness with her cubs.

A bird teaching its young to fly

Go with the flow of our fertile earth.

Relax with the sigh of breeze blown leaves,


Run with the speed of our "Fast-track" world....

Where is it heading?

Why is it speeding?

Mountain streams run into rippling rivers,

Rivers make their way to the sea.

The sea ebbs and flows, soothes

with sounds of tranquillity.

The world we have to live in.

The world doesn't pause for breath!.

Run faster.... Jump higher...Get richer.

That's our world, for many reasons,

But that world is not our beautiful earth.

Breathe deeply, Be tranquil.

Love our earth and its produce.

Appreciate stars and the light of the moon.

Smell the aroma of fields full of flowers,

Aromas that calm us down.

We need to be calm , loving and tender,

Stroke the velvet fur of a cat.

All these things are things of our earth,

Our beautiful planet.!

We all need a break from this fast-track world

New gadgets each week,

More information, More worries,

More wars, More sickness.

Our World..!

But our Earth?

Well that can be different.

Try to find time to cuddle a child,

Tell them a story of forests and hills,

Sea-shores and sand.

Loving and giving, always be kind.

In harmony with our beautiful earth,

We can find more happiness,

than ever we can in our war-torn world.

The earth is our natural home.

This man-made world

makes us always alone.

    l admire your stance on taking care of your grandmother.

    We did the same with my mother-in-law. Those memories of a relatives last days are sweet. People belong with their families if at all possible.

    I understand what you say about weapons.

    This is a nice article however "Billions of humans are caring, loving, and giving." is true. However, there are so many that do wish to cause harm just because we don't believe in what they believe. To many are intolerant are try and force their beliefs on everyone else. The ones that are caring and loving don't judge and instead we just try and help. I spent the last 10 years taking care of my grandma up until the day she died. Everyone said I should have just put her in a home and forget her but I didn't. I cherish the time I spent with her and if I didn't do what I did I wouldn't have those memories.

    The weapons that are built are not made to destroy the earth but are there to keep others from harming and to try and stop those that wish to do harm.

    We have a choice...this free will we have been understand and cherish this beautiful earth or look the other way in a kind of self-obsessed destruction. Your thoughtful poetry asks these questions in beautiful, profound ways that are inescapable. Voted up and shared. :-)

    There is a very real distinction, is there not? And it is one we would do well to remember. Thank you for driving home that point.
