Embrace us

We tramp through her woods, her fields, her mountains
Covering her beauty with concrete
This angelic land
Not grasping we are killing life beneath our paws
No distress if we had known
It's okay
Mother Earth embraces us, it's okay
We are pardoned
This I can't comprehend
While she loves us, thrives us, we do not love her back
Why don't we love her as she does?
We are blind
She pardons us
Embraces us, it's okay
"How embarrassing it is to be human"

I really like your piece, it points out the obvious that no one seems to see. My favorite part is the last line! how very true. :)
