Earth is my Mama

Awakening to a senseless breath,

a breeze takes over; a simple stroke

as yesterday's misfortunes fall back into focus

__________

One fork in the road,

a choice, I suppose

And she reminds me without fail

to treat others with ease

__________

Yet it seems quite unfair to me

Sunlight seeps into the sheets

Despite what's been done to me

She's always right there for me

__________

A reminder of solitude

and grandeur and grace

A stable foundation for a lowly race

to keep me on my feet

to master the art of restart

__________

Her morals float so high above

And all are invited

to the planet party of love

__________

"Remind one another

no matter the cost

never exclude.

Share your thoughts."

__________

So love your mama

as much as you can

Protect her, stand by her

She's falling again

__________

I trip on her roots just to feel

a sense of belonging, she sings to me

Appreciate the chills, the message, the thrills...

Bringing me back to myself.

__________

My mother, my ground, my home.
