Forgive us our sins, dear, incredible Earth.
For our parents didn't know that plastics would make you so sick.
Our grandparents didn't realize that lead would poison your water and your dirt.
Our great-grandparents didn't see that burning coal could destroy your air.
We still have much to learn so that we may take better care of you.
As we work to undo the harms already created,
we ask for your forgiveness,
for your patience,
for your tolerance.
We are humbled by your magical resilience.
Awed by your always-being-there.
Grateful for your astounding beauty.
We honor the peaceful quiet you give us each day and night.
And we are grateful for the steady calm you bring,
despite the torment so many of us feel inside our bodies and our minds.
Thank you, spectacular Earth, for giving us life and breath.
We vow to do better, day by day by day.
