Black is the ocean, as the liquid gold spills
Black is the feathers choking seabird bills
Black is the day we pollute another shore
And Black is my heart as it aches with her sores..
Earth Mother, oh Earth Mother, we abuse you so
We ruin your waters, we ruin your glow..
Earth Mother, Oh Earth Mother, help us to see
How each hurt we inflict, hurts You and Me..
Tell me this, tell me true,
Why is man destroying You?
I hold onto your beauty, I hold onto your Light
Why do they not see the hurt of your plight?
The blackness is greed, which now spills from your depths
The seas of darkness, like hovering debts
Each is a mirror, in the conscious thought
Many not caring and think of you naught
My heart bleeds with you, I hear your cries
You weep endlessly from your skies
You howl and scream and belch out smoke
You shake us and rattle and blew as you spoke
But do we listen? To your words of woo
No we humans.. We think we know..
But soon your scorn, your wind and your storms
Will devour us, and leave us with no form.
And then our lament will wail like your Winds
Our Maker will show us the price of our sins
And our Earth Mother will cry, in her birthing pains
As yet another end-cycle begins again……
