Analysis of Our Earth

        OUR EARTH
We all live on this big ball of rock,
spinning and rotating around the clock.
Floating in the middle of space,
relying on the sun to keep us in place.

Life is a gift that we take for granted
The earth is a beautiful curious planet,
full of environmental resources to keep us alive
that we all need to Share in order for us to survive.

No matter our race or color, we should all respect and love one another
and treat each stranger as our sister or brother.
Enjoy life and live each day as if it were our last.
Appreciate what people we know and don’t know
have given of themselves to us in the present and the past.

Don’t let greedy Rulers make us like them,
by hurting and killing many without amends.

We must stay united, caring and kind,
So we can all. survive and stay aligned
