Remembering, The Debt Owed (March 19, 2016)

As a child
I was taught
By my dad
To show respect
Towards all lifeforms.

Regardless
Of what I thought
Of them.
Whether
It be
A weed plant
Or a pest insect.
In returning
The great gifts
That they provide
To us.

In the form
Of food
Companionship
Or simple beauty
In our lives.

Acknowledging
Our debt
To Mother Earth.

For sharing
Her creation
With us.

Without it
There wouldn't be
Life.
