LIFE GOES ON
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

The Bees don't need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Bees...
The Seas don't need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Seas!
The Grasses will go on growing
The Trees, their leaves renew..
The Sun will keep on burning
Also, the falling Dew...

The Creatures don't need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Creatures..
Living things don't need Mankind
But Oh! What they do teach us!
They don't destroy their Habitat
They don't act like they are God!
All Life lives in harmony
From the Air, the Seas and Sod!

The Sky doesn't need Mankind
But Mankind needs the Sky
The Rains don't need Mankind
But no Rain...All would die...
Living Waters feed all Life..
No matter what the form
Without Water all would perish
We need the Rain, the Storm!

Mankind needs the whole of Life
But Life needs to be respected...
Mankind needs to learn one thing
That ALL LIFE is connected...
Each Life depends on others
In Living, Dying, Birth....
We must take care of our Mother
She is our ONLY EARTH!!.....
