Our Mother Earth

By: Joshua Isham

This mother Earth,
Who give us life;
This mother Earth
Heart filled with stife,

We love her not,
Though love we should;
Her death we plot,
For life’s “own good”

She gave us air, and food, and home,
That’s not enough we humans scream;
With greedy lust our mouths do foam,
With evil hopes our eyes do gleam;

Her air will fill,
With smoke and death;
Ourselves we kill,
For lack of breath;

The sea once clean.
Now choked with waste;
To drink we fear,
Will death make haste;

The soil once pure,
And full of life;
Now barren sand,
Of farmer’s strife;

No longer she,
Can stand our “love”
Now we must flee,
Like scaterred dove;

She gave us all Unto the end;
Now we appalled, 
Our lives defend
