Earth Rewrites

by Dr. Woody McCree

You have been bombarded, my friend,
Like the moon and mars, which bear the scars
Of asteroids pounding 4 billion years past.
But you, unlike these wounded giants, bear few such visible scars.

You are alive, ever in motion, always healing,
Ever reinventing yourself.
You are always under revision.
