Thought for the day...

Buried  Souls  Do Speak

Does my righteousness offend you?
Some say I act too proud.
Say my voice speaks with temperament;
Say I boast and sing too loud.

Say I speak of untold truths
Whose lies are buried deep.
Say, through the surface of Mother Earth
Buried Souls do speak.

Their injustices never righted,
Their graves go unmarked.
Wretched souls forever lost,
Left to roam in the dark.

Lost souls not forgotten
Their stench decayed and rotten;
Surfaced from the core of the Mother Earth
Whose truths are long forgotten.

Receded by her waves,
Marked in shallow graves,
Brought forth to cleanse us of Hate
That the soul forever craves.

Go to sleep dear child
As we put your souls to rest.
Cleanse and heal your children,
Nourish them to do their very best.

Go to sleep my child
The fight is already won,
Bring forth new beginnings
Under the healing light of the Sun.

Go to sleep dear child
As we prepare you for rebirth.
May the Heavenly Universe
Always protect, nourish and bless
Our beloved Mother Earth.
