She's so tired. She can barely stay awake. Screams fill Her world. She's exhausted from being torn, burned, and pillaged. She feels Her children's pain. She hears their screams and feels their deaths.
She's always given all She can, but She's tired. All She wants to do is lay down in green pastures of wide, open spaces and breathe no more. Yet She won't. She'll keep giving all She has until She has absolutely nothing left to give for that is what mothers do, and She is the Mother of them all. Mother Earth closes Her eyes and spins again.
