A Plea to the Goddess
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
