A Plea to the Goddess

by Crick

[WVox Sponsor]

Age Group: Adult



Plea to the Goddess

Forgive us Goddess, for we have screwed up.

You give us the green fields and forests
A virtual panorama of flowers and bright colors
We give you strip malls
And paved roads marring your beauty

Forgive us Goddess, for we heed not

You give us pure and sweet tasting air
A deep blissful breath of your essence
And we give you smoke stacks
And politicians who don’t care

Forgive us Goddess, for we know not

You give us pure and glistening waters
Water so clear, frothing with joyful bubbles
We give you polluted streams and oceans
Oil slicks, corporate greed

Forgive us Goddess, for we are near sighted

You give us the animals, and birds and fish
A cacophony of life, vibrant and alive
We give you extinct and endangered species
We give you our murderous forays against the life that you created

Forgive us Goddess, for we care not

You give us the ability to love and to show compassion
The opportunity to revel in your radiant beauty
We give you hatred and wars
Road rage and ignorance towards others

Forgive us Goddess for we are so rude

You give us Mother Earth
A true gift in all Her splendor
We give you global warming
And a total disregard for such a special gift

Forgive us Goddess, for we are hypocrites

You give us the chance to grow spiritually
A path to follow to your blessed bosom
We give you egotism and community upheaval within our beliefs
We give you empty talk and shallow lives

Forgive us Goddess, for we are arrogant

You give us the knowledge of life
A connection to all life in this realm
And we give you atomic bombs
The ability to wipe out all that is dear to you Mother

And since every detractor has their excuse;
Ours is that we are simply human
We are simply human

Forgive us dear Goddess
Forgive us.
