Be Grateful, Mother Earth Made You


I'd be grateful now if i was you
For it would sound so unkind and untrue
To disdain and profane the land that made you

I wouldn't say now if i was you without reason
'There is a better place far beyond the horizon'
Why? I'm content with mother earth and her changing seasons

If there was a God who ruled with love
He wouldn't have left and lurk above
I say to you, He would be the Earth we have

I in my rightful senses, i'm no fool
I'm just a soul to Nature so true that speaks now to you
Saying if i was you, living on this earth
From the second of my birth to the moment of my death
Given by whatever gods the chance to trod this earth so beautiful
I would stop whining and forever be grateful

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
