Are we close to nature's heart,
Or are we distant from the start?
Under our cities of concrete and asphalt
Is a borrowed foundation on which we build upon.
Have we lost our way in a maze of material distractions?
Our very survival is rooted hear on earth.
Don't overlook what God has woven into nature.
We are intertwined with all that is.
Feel the sacred ground on which you walk on,
And the elements within its sphere.
Co-existence with earth has been neglected is seen.
But creating unity and harmony with our planet,
The heartbeat of earth and humanity as one shall be.
