This poem was inspired by There is a Better Way by Tony DeLorger
Saving Grace is something we all need
To compensate for our imperfections,
Love, kindness, spirituality we should heed,
When wishing to make the right connections.
As we grow older we hopefully have learned
From mistakes we made along the way,
To take the same path where we were spurned
Causes a lot of heartache, sorrow and dismay.
Mother Earth has also learned from our mistakes,
She knows humanity cares too much for power
And not enough for woodlands and lakes,
Or the beauty of Nature in nooks and bowers.
May humanity awaken and do justice,
To Mother Nature, no more to deface,
The beauty which was gifted to us,
And may we do it with our saving grace.
