I am also the mother Of rivers and lakes That lead to the ocean's seas..
I am the song of the storm That whips up Sometimes a little too Exuberantly..
A table was set for me at the beginning of time I am the strongest And yet most forgiving Of the 3 other Sisters and brothers of mine And the blue Of this great marble When our earth mother Was aligned..
I run around freely Through the dirt In the ground And have been known To take down mountains That get in my way..
I can be calm But I can get a little Out of control Because I really like to play..
The humans that use me In every way, every day Are 80% me So they need me to stay..
I love to condensate in clouds And give them a Spray..
But, when they don't hear The truth Or see Even with me, in their eyes..
That i'll be gone, my rivers, lakes Oceans and drinkable streams..
Gone, when they're not careful All done All dried..
I will have NOTHING For the future Family they may have had..
When they need Their souls cleansed In my rivers Washed away, on rebirth day..
Remaining bare and dry Feeling un-cleansed and bad..
I've gotten so scared Watching them And confused By the doings of Our beings That I had invited them to a table Where I can't even water the elephants Or plants, that need a drink That in some places I've just stayed hidden, I think..
While in other places, just cried Until parts of my mother Became TOO wet..
Sometimes my confusion Lead to anger I tried to wash them All off..
Even if I know It's not ALL their fault. We must ALL work together Or everything Will eventually Be completely lost..
We'll be too dehydrated, to cry Over what we have done..
We'll all evaporate From you to the seas Along with me Under the blazing heat Of my cousin,the Sun..
