“The Land knows you, even if you are lost…” Robin Wall Kimmerer

The Earth is very forgiving…
We are destroying our Mother,
Yet she knows us and supports us
and will continue doing that
For as long as she possibly can.
Because we are her children
How long we still have is uncertain
But we need to understand
That her resources can be depleted
And we are depleteing them faster everyday.
How many species are we missing already?
I have stopped counting
since counting is futile
Yes, she knows us even though we are so lost
But we’d better stop depleting and begin to replenish
Or the day will surely come that she will
run out of everything
