THE EARTH

I can not help but wonder When God created the earth How did He think of all the things It takes to make it work I know God is God And He knows all things But the things I've been a witness to How do they work I mean The lava boils deep in the earth Why does it need to leave And when it does break through the crust It becomes a volcano to us It has destroyed all in its path What of the hole it leaves behind The cavity eventually caves in And then the mountains do begin Mean while the surface heals itself The wind and rain step in The soils that are blown and washed in Help heal the scars again What of the ash from the volcano As it infiltrates the air As it settles it brings death Such as ASH FALL in Nebraska Where the rhino's met their end And what of the earth quakes As the earth seems to shake in pain The cracks that they leave behind Form gullies and ravines The oil, the gas, the silver, the gold The floods, the tornados, the drouths, the cold Fires caused by lightenings sting Are all under Mother Natures wing The animals before man's time Lived and died as was designed And still the earth went on and on And healed it self from dusk to dawn And now that man is here It has to work harder It is there to heal the wounds That man seems to father Then we have the food chain Land and water both provide And if man doesn't watch his step Fathom waits outside Now and then it does rebel It gets the upper hand Tornados, blizzards, hurricanes Volcanos and desert sand The scars the wars do leave Mother Nature does her best If only we'd learn to live in peace She could take a rest And all the stupid things man does Like building homes along a high cliff Then when Mother Nature does her thing Bet you can guess who takes the blame The heavens, the earth were made by God, And for eons they did survive Then God created man, If they don't work side by side Neither of them will abide I guess I answered my own question I just had to use my brain Thank You God for all Your help I hope it's not in vain
