Terra

IMG_2013

Grounded she stands

With nothing but an urge

To lend out a helping branch

 

Sinking her roots into the damp soil of her homeland

A homeland that once took pride in the diversity it gave birth

Grounded she stands

 

Even flowers grow places without a plan

Only one way to serve

To lend out a helping branch

 

Her dreams evergreen, she understands

Surviving the curse

Grounded she stands

 

A century she withstands

Leading the stolen, nowhere but north

To lend out a helping branch

 

Wistfully she waits for a time that commands

Love for all, so they never forget their worth

Grounded she stands

To lend out a helping branch
