Mother Earth

The nutrients I was born with,
You have ripped from my flesh.
My shell,
You have fractured.
Digging into my core.
I am a mother.
Guarding her children.
Vengeful for those who do us harm.
Wiser than the minds who adorn greed.
Stronger than the iron you seek.
Take notice of my bareness.
Take pity on your children’s future.
For I am a mother who will not forgive.
Broken shards are left for you to feast on.
Do not underestimate my fury.
You narcissistic human race.
I will suck the marrow from your bones.
Wrapping you in dust.

Born and raised in New York City. I have been lucky enough to live in various countries, including France, where I wrote lyrics for French up-and-coming singers and jingles for radio stations. I now enjoy retired life on a ranch in Northwest Montana.
