They become orphans of the earth
Severed from the umbilical cord of love.
By human kin
They too become like their estranged, violent siblings.
Of not having enough
Of mother earth's attention.
That wealth of materials cannot save their
Material bodies from decay.
Forgetting that happiness is only possible
Through the happiness of all.
