Mother Nature, oh beautiful and resilient
How we’ve done you wrong
We strip your minerals and
Use your resources for our frivolous gain
We value that which shines
Over that which reflects the essence of all that’s true
Do we listen?
You whimper in pain
Do we come to your aid?
You offer us shelter
Do we protect you with as much fervor?
Your roots are deep
Ours are but seedlings on the surface
