I am a child of this Earth
But I do not feel worthy
What if my foot prints became scars upon the skin of my Mother?
I meant to tread lightly
And to treat my home with love and respect
This home that I do not deserve,
Yet She still so graciously gave to me
And even though I was born from this soil
I fear that when my time comes to lay back down on this Earth to rest
My Mother won’t accept me again.
