“The earth is what we all have in common.” Wendell Berry
We all live on the same planet.
We all need the same mix of air.
Designed to eat from Earth’s garden
And drink from bodies of water
Abundant in all of our bodies,
We all floated in our mother’s wombs
We all cry the same salty tears.
We are more alike than different.
You would think
we could all get along
If not for ourselves, then
For the sake of all children
of the great Mother Earth.
And we can.
