Earth

She created you, birthed you
from her own flesh and bone
Every atom, every twist of DNA
Was all by Her design.

You were once the spring leaf 
Of an old tree long gone.
You were the mud on the riverbank.
You were the star that exploded
And made our solar system.

You are a part of your home
A part of this Earth
Just as a snail 
Is a part of her shell.

Next time it is dark
And you can't find your roots
Remember this:
The land knows you even when you are lost.
