PEACE (2)
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Will God ever see
His earth when it's free
Of pollution, extinction, and waste?
Sweet dreams have I
Of years gone by
When life wasn't lived in haste!

When God could look down
On Mother Earth's crown
All life was cherished and pure
Rivers were clean, air was fresh
Nature..her wounds could cure!

Will God ever know
A time He can sow
A seed in the ground that will grow?
Or a creature just born
From His earth won't be torn
For the sake of man's greed for dough?

Will God ever hear
An Earth without fear
When death and destruction will cease?
When at last man's not driven
To kill all he's given
God's Earth will at last be at Peace!
