In a world of possibilities,
We are given important responsibilities,
To take care of one another,
And our planet, our Earth Mother.

Through the tapestry of time untied,
Each act, each choice, has another side,
In harmony, we must resonate,
To heal, to nurture, to cultivate.

With stewardship comes a gentle hand,
To guard the seas, and cherish the land,
In the echoes of our successor’s pleas,
We strive for a future we all want to see.

United in purpose, diverse in thought,
Lessons from the past, dearly taught,
Fostering a legacy of tender care,
For the air we breathe, the water we share.

As custodians, may we be wise,
To see the world through another’s eyes,
And in this realm of endless scope,
We hold the power, we harbor hope.

I’m a humble bard who likes to play with words and create new worlds. I also like chocolate. And cake.
