Watch your steps. Watch, for every step you make
Leaves an indelible mark on the face
Of Mother Earth, and every breath you take
And exhale invades someone else's space.
Watch where you head, for all the roads run out,
The Earth is round and there is no escape.
No matter how you rave, or how you shout,
Upon your eyes will descend a dark drape.
Watch how you love; it can turn against you
If your mind and heart is not pure as snow.
There’s heaven and hell; you get what is due,
You can fly up high or land down below.
Your life is your own. Smile, laugh, scream or yell,
This Earth is your home, your own heaven and hell.
