men in the landscape

men in the landscape

there are those who would stay on the land 
until the land takes them back again 
it is their mother

there are those who were once firmly rooted 
who wish to escape and fly above it 
it is still their mother

it holds to them and brings them back into the fold 
when they love women 
it is the mother

they are the ones who resist the hardest
their death brings them back again 
it has been and always will be
the great mother
