The Earth on Her Side

by Brianna G. Harte

In a single moment, the world can fall on her side

But it seems to me that it’s up to us to decide

Whether or not she stays there, whether she’s worthy of change.

To either be created anew or simply rearranged.

She can adjust as can we, though how quickly, I’m not sure

But I do know that she can be great when she’s not pure

Though helping her rise from the gunky pit

Will always improve the outcome bit by bit.

Do not tell others that her chances are shot

For the younger ones and old can still be taught

To improve the very Earth at her core

To discover the beautiful future in store.
