She Cried Me A River

She Cried me a River 

Mother Nature had a decree 
That life,animals and plants, 
be allowed to grow free 
But along came man and played with life, 
Destroying environs and causing strife. 
Mother Nature tried to deliver,
In her sadness and despair, 
She cried me a river! 

Mother Nature wish to command, 
A world full of fruits to nourish the land 
But man-made chemicals changed its course,
Soon the weather would emit its mighty force, 
Mother Nature tried to deliver 
In frustration to cease the exploitation
She cried me a river!   

Mother Nature had a scheme, 
A balance on earth it is her dream,
Where man and animals could work in harmony 
Become a force together....natures army! 
Mother  Nature will have delivered, 
In  joy and celebration. 
She will cry me a river!
