It is us

Today I was thinking about the earth and God’s creation. This is what created itself.

the earthwe see

Hurt, anger, pain

everywhere

 

Do the flowers

Feel pain

As their petals fall?

 

Are the trees sad

When they are gray

In winter?

 

Is the river

Angry with

the sea?

 

no

no

no

 

More often it is us

Who give

The pain

 

It is us

Who cause

The anger

 

It is us

Who bring

The hurt

 

We pluck

The flower

From its stem

 

We cut down

The tree

While it lives

 

We spill oil

Into

The river

 

It is us

 

We bring

Pain

Anger

Hurt

 

It is us
