by Marisa Papen

While adrift in this spiritual sea
In this quantum of time
That we call now and today
The suppressed secret to our salvation was set to flame

Oh Holy Sun
Why did we hide in the shade?

Even though your heartbeat pulses symphonically with ours
And we are blessed by Earth's reciprocal green and blue chorus
We kept running
Fast and un-paced
Missing the beat of our fate

But then suddenly
You slowed us down
You gave us a break
And lives have been given
for a cause that’s yet to be learned
But I trust
these losses will help us pave the way

You ferally force us
To look deep within
To environ our thoughts
To kill our thirst for blood
To be guided by love and peace stimulus

You are showing us
The door of understanding
So we can fly through as a loving species
That will finally be able to see
That you are a star and I am a star
That all beings in this biosphere are baptized by Earth
That we are significant in our insignificance
That this planet is one, and that borders are plastered wounds
That we are family, and not only people or people-like species
But that every organism and plant and tree
Belong to Earth Family
