For Mother Earth

From mother earth I fly,
Bathing in the unknown blackness of the universe,
Detached from the illusions my eyes placed upon me,
Engulfing myself in the nothingness of love,
For mother earth I cry,
As I see man with his tools digging at her skin,
Poisoning her consciousness with war and blood,
Leaving her to see her children raped of their dignity,
To mother earth I lie,
Convincing her our future is not of fire and disease,
Soothing her tears with the umbrella of my faith,
Patching her wounds with the seeds of innocence,
With mother earth I die,
Escaping from the naked eye into internal existence,
Glowing in the covered grave of my relatives,
Releasing my flame from the hell that enslaves it,
From mother earth I fly!
