For those who have yet to see a forest
For those yet to have seen the sea
May their goodness befall upon you
For the Earth will set you free.
Our Mother is crying for us to be kind
for the seed of the Earth is falling behind.
Stay in the roots, for the next path to follow
For some but not others, will be shallow and hollow.

I was really touched by the first four lines. I am blessed to live by the ocean but, no matter how many times I see it, it is always breath-taking to see the endless blue extending past the horizon. The sight of the sea or forest really does set your spirit free and I like the way you portrayed it.

Hi Northern, maybe you would be interested in adding another stanza? It is sad to think that some people have never even had the chance to experience our natural wonders, and how a portion of mankind is just taking our Earth for granted.
