Life, is a fickle thing, a part of our being, will, and wants. Respect its gentle message.
What is life?

What is life?

is it something on the edge of a knife?

when I look at earth from space,

when I think about this place,

I think not about its size,

nor beauty,

for what it holds is a greater prize,

and I appreciate it fully.

No, I think of three things, no four, that are invisible but moving...

A baby's strength,

A first home,

what comes after pride, and...

earth's loneliness

Yes, I said it,


We have only one.


A single planet to share,







so, to continue,

With one side life cuts with evil and wars,

With the other it rolls with joy and soars,

Because it is ours,

Not mine, or yours,

His, or her's,

We all have it as a part<

Of our deepest instincts, in our hearts,

For it is not mother nature changing earth's face,

But, it is something called, the human race.
