Beautiful Mother Earth
Loving and caring mother
Loving and compassionate mother
A big womb you have, birthing new life every day,
Mother, you have a big heart, loves unconditionally
All Living creatures, including human beings
You provide enough for all.
You are the source of our survival
A true Mother that nourishes the thousands and thousands of lives,
No choice they have but to depend on you alone,
What would life be without you, Mother?
Without cost you give and ask no return
Where has your beauty gone?
Yes, my beauty has gone,
I’ve been burnt, polluted and wounded,
I have been ransacked and torn by machines.
It is painful, the bruises and cuts
Pain is endless, it hurts, I am panting.
What I have has been taken away from me.
My body is left with deep wounds, naked and torn.
I am empty, weary and desolate; I am no more,
Too much the pain, why? Why? Why?
Justice, love and peace are gone,
What have I done, my children?
Didn’t I give you everything you needed?
What more do you want?
Amidst the pain, hurt and not being appreciated
Anything you ask of me, I’ll refuse not
I still care
My beloved children, Can you hear me?
Have you noticed and heard my groaning
Greed for money, power and self-interest took away my beauty,
Pain, more damage done to me and to other living creatures
Powerless they are, we are connected.
Our hopes are in you to end this endless pain,
Please consider my painful groaning
Please, help me!
