WOMAN OF MY TIME

 

Morning star in the evening

Sunrise off the moon.

Doctor says it's cancer

Dying--maybe soon.

Woman of my time

 

With death as my advisor

 

To act impeccably

The moment as my teacher

My only goal, to see.

Woman of my time.

 

Grandfather owl, show me

Flying through the night

Give my eyes the long view

When choosing what is right.

The earth is healing.

 

Drank the poison water

When I was just a child

Poison seeped into the ground,

Progress running wild.

Woman of my time.

 

Kids are playing on that

 

 ground

 

Every single day.

Cancer's epidemic,

and no one wants to see

The earth is crying.

 

"Yes, you have a cancer,

But please, don't say the word.

I'm busy making money,

And who can save the world?
Women of our time.

 

Morning star in the evening

Sunrise off the moon

Deal the cards, read the signs

Change is coming soon

Women of our time

Woman of my time.
