I Feel The Earth

I Feel The Earth by Valerie Parente

I feel the earth
under my toes,
it’s one of the only things
that doesn’t feel gross

The soil, the dirt, and me,
we are nature all the same,
I am one with the earth,
no such thing can contaminate.

I’ve always been in touch,
I just had to put it to paper,
material from the earth,
expressed back to the maker.

Don’t cry for me and my hangups,
every person has their own fight,
mine in particular was obsessive,
but I always felt the earth on my side.
