Unity - A Poem

Updated on July 4, 2016

I was born to be free

But soon they arrested me

To put me in a cage called manipulation

Not the right place for a good education

Their gods were money and competition

They never asked me for my permission

The time went by and things became worse

Until I found the right teacher - our Mother Earth

No more manipulation but education

No more competition but cooperation

I was born again and I was free

Mother Earth was teaching me Unity

      Silly humans think we can control the planet and some have set out to save the Earth. The Earth will still be here, humans will not. Great poem!

      OMG - magnificent! You can really write. I am already a fan and eager to read more from you. This is brilliant. I have learned more from mother earth than from man. She teaches by example. If all of us would only take the time to listen, watch and act. Warm thanks and appreciation - vocalcoach :)

      For all it's problems created mostly by MAN mother earth is where I want to be, however we are being watched and one day soon Disclosure will emerge and we earthlings will have to account for the destruction and greed and wars we have caused here on beautiful earth. Welcome to a New World Order...yikes..
