Favorite Quote:
'It's lacking the one thing that keeps us alive. It's lacking people. Stupid, oridinairy, brilliant people!'

She gives,
but never takes.
She lives,
but never dies.

Her spirit gives life,
just like a flower
and greed steals it all away.

Wealth brought down
her green sons and daughters
and mankind steals it all away.

She is our Earth,
so we should take care--
don’t let greed get it’s way,
or it’ll take our Earth away.

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this piece is how awful some people treat our planet. I want people to be able to read this poem and, hopefully, realize that they should take better care of our Earth.
