We Do Not Inherit The Earth

We do not inherit the earth

We borrow it from our children

We do not possess what we have

The earth can belong to noone

Take what you need,

The earth can provide for all.

All but your greed,

Your greed will destroy us all.


Fill your lungs with life-giving air

And know it’s the same breath for everyone

Dig your hands deep into the soil

And know it’s the same ground that feeds us all

The earth is a web

We are but strands in it

Each strand we touch

Touches the rest of it…
