Mine!
A hastily spoken;
Too freely used word!

Mine.....you are mine!
The child is mine!
The land is mine!
But.....what means mine?

You are mine!
Only as long as our hearts align.
Only as long as our love holds strong!

The child is mine!
Only untill my guidance is learned.
Only untill the child becomes adult!

The land is mine!
I cultivate it.....I live on it.....with it!
But how can one man own,
What the creator has given in trust?

We were given the land in trust!
Trust to keep for future generations!
Trust to keep it alive and growing,
So that the land might give us life!

Now we have broken that trust!
Now we give only death!
Death to the land;
Death to the people;
Death ot the future!

Mine.....there is no mine!
Not even this life is truly mine!
For the creator breathed life into me.
And the creator will take that breath away,
When the time comes!

Mine!
A hastily spoken;
Too freely used word!
