Once Upon a Day


Once upon a day in the past of shadows 
the earth was full of life and song, she touched
each leaf with joy and showered down her
love to all, she was in balance with the

Universe, mother nature was her name.
Now Mother seeks what use to be in a life
long passed, where rain sparkled like stars
from above, and rainbows kept time to the
bluebells filled with delight.
Darkness shines in the light of doubt when fear
never existed once upon a time in the past
of shadows when the earth was full of song
a paradise made for peace, love, and harmony.

Now fear wears a mask to hide away the light
that kept the world balanced, the darkness
of night carry no stars, sparkling with faith
down on our poor earth made for trust, love
and eternal peace.
We bow down and worship not our God, but
the establishment of shame and dishonor.
We have cursed our selves and disowned what
was given us with love.

Mother Nature cries, for the light that
brought love has now been ripped
apart with greed, self-doubt
shaking hands with fear.
