Poetry – This World Is Our World

This World Is Our World

This world is our world,

This world is their world,

We share it,

We don’t own it

It belongs to all of us.

The green spirits,

The many creatures,

The rolling landscapes

Its glorious features.

This world is home for all of us.

This world is our world,

This world is their world,

We share it,

We don’t own it

It belongs to all of us.

The flowing rivers,

The majestic forests,

The herds and flocks,

So full of promise,

This world is home for all of us.

This world is our world,

This world is their world,

We share it,

We don’t own it

It belongs to all of us.

Opher – 10.2.2021

I was thinking of Woody Guthrie’s great anthem and extending it further.

We all share this planet. It’s our home. It is not just the people; it is nature in all its forms. We are all part of a great miraculous web of life that has taken billions of years to evolve.

Just as we people have to learn to get along in peace and prosper so too do we have to learn to get along with nature so that we can all flourish.

Nature is our life support.

It’s time we cherished each other, the world we live on, and all the life we share it with.

I'd like to hear from you...
