She is nature
The soft gentle breeze
The very air you breathe
And the drought, the hurricane
Wiping good and evil
All the same.

Destruction without
Like she nurtures
Without discrimination.

Like a neglected lover
Once Beautiful, generous, flavorful
She gave everything in love
Now she is taking it all back
Remorseless in her fury.

You took her for granted
Far too long Son
And she is only starting to get angry
She hasn’t given up on you
Not completely, not yet.

Wake up there’s time
She doesn’t need you
She is nature
You Need Her.
