Earth is alive

Earth is alive

Earth is alive,
a sacred place,
she knows you by name,
you’re not the master here
this isn’t a game.

She doesn’t need you
to protect her,
or to fight and wail.
She’s just waiting for you
to see her,
to lift the veil.

if we wish to stay here
to understand our path
surrender to her power
avoid her wrath

you see my friend
your life is nothing
It’s completely in her hands
let go of the dream you dream
try to understand.

you are just a guest here
Power is not the way
try to remember this truth
if you want to stay.
