What have we done to this world?
The earth, so big and powerful
Crumbles from the industrial injustices of humankind.

In order to keep the sea levels down and the sustainability up
we must work together to take care of mother earth.

We harvest the lands,
Drink the seas
Pollute the skies
Crush homes
But what do we know?
After all, we are only human.

I am the rain, part of the earth – like all of you
You think the earth doesn’t cry.
But I am the earth’s tears.
I provide water for the plants and animals.
If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t be alive.

Home – this Serene Place
we are disturbing the serenity
with a want for power
our thoughtlessness is
like a rock falling into a calm lake
like a scream in the quietest night
Please save our serene home

Earth, green and vast
Trees, tall and strong
Mountains, majestic and sturdy
Creatures, wild and free
Sky, vast and blue

Beautiful, unique
Turtles swimming the vast open seas
full of calming beautiful sights

I am beautiful
I am unique
I am too mysterious for eyes to see
I am mother earth
Respect your mother!

Trees grow up
get big and green
People chop and burn the trees
