Through the eyes of the Earth

I looked at myself and found something new There were animals on me and people too I wondered why but I was sure I knew God had planned what he wanted to do I knew this through the mind of the Earth I saw today and felt as well People treating me, their home, well I heard as they began to tell Stories of adventures on my outer shell I heard this through the ears of the Earth I woke up today and saw a new sight All people did was hate, lie, and fight From dawn to dusk all day and all night They no longer did what they used to, what was right And I was saddened by this through the heart of the Earth I've lived many years and you all see me often You all fight with your sister your brother Some are lowered into me in coffins Why all this fighting why all this pain Everyone has their own special worth I saw all this through the eyes of the Earth
