“Life is not meant to be lived, In wretched ignorance and dearth. It is a life of awareness and action, Which begets abundance on Earth. So act when someone snatches away, Another’s hard-earned worth. Or when you see a lack of compassion, Towards our Mother Earth. For it is the Earth which readily provides, Our food, clothing and shelter. To bite the hand which feeds the mouth, Does not bode well for human culture. A day will come, and it seems not far, When the Earth could take no more. Her heated air and toxic soil, Would stifle us to the core. So wake up to the ultimate truth, That the Earth and you are one. Wake up and protect this home of homes, Before you are left with none.” – “Wake Up and Smell the Earth” by Dimple Arora, March 2009.
