The Earth

The earth in true beauty
is without the scars of wars
And the fumes of progress
It mends and cleanses
Rebels, in quakes
and erupting volcanos
Though we thoughtlessly
Abuse and take for granted
The miracle
That the earth is
God nonetheless
Gifts us with beauty each day
Beauty such as this is not
created by chance
Just as you and I
are not here by accident
The earth was created
For us to dwell in peace
And love
Just as
Our bodies
Are meant to be
The dwelling place of
Our creator
The prince of peace
Let us not be content
To live mindlessly
Without purpose
And responsibility
But instead
Dwell on the earth
Taking care
Wherever our footsteps take us
Let us embody
The love and peace
Of our creator
