We need an Earth Song – Poem#22 – National Poetry Month

hands-600497_1920Everyone has their own personal earth song
and that is the main problem
An Earth song that is confined to the
boundaries of power, politics and patriotism
An Earth Song that has been silent
by religious prayers, chants and fanatic howls
Everyone has their own personal earth song
and that is the main problem

We only have one earth and
we only need one earth song
a song that will repeat itself within all of us
a song to which every living being can dance
an earth song for every one of us

We should all hear it when we lie
flat on the bare ground
feeling the earth
keeping our ears close to it
we can hear it beat
synchronizing with our heart beat
We all should have that one same earth song

earth-683436_1280An earth song that is above language, color, race
An earth song that
even non-humans can relate to
Not a song with lyrics and music
but one that has statistics and is scientific
we need an earth song that is rational

We on earth all need an earth song
not a personal one but one that we all can
dance and swing to
one that we can all live up to
one that we can pass on to the next generation
an earth song that is more an education
teached the facts of depletion
and instills the urgency for conservation
