A day to celebrate our Mother
A day to honour all she is
She gives us life, a home and love
And yet we daily risk
All that she has given us
All the fruit that she has born
And all that she can do is trust
That we will keep her safe to see another Dawn.
Can’t you see her heart is broken
As we daily subject her to pain?
She tried to tell us, she has spoken
Through her tears within the rain!
The climate changes its expression
All around her aching globe
As we cut and burn her body,
As we poke and prod and probe.
She is begging us to heal her
All she wants is to be loved
Will she live to see tomorrow?
Will our children be absolved?
Come celebrate this Earth Day
Make the choice to make a change
Let today be the start of all tomorrows
and let Mother Earth be now avenged.
