The land beneath my feet is my bread
It is complicated in its recipe

I have toiled over its composition
I have sunk my hands into its depth

It is my pain and my pleasure
It is what I consume every day

My back aches from its administrations
I fight to not walk away from it

I take it for granted, even though
It is my sustenance and provides for me

I woke up to chores that I didn’t want to do
And realized this morning that my land is my cake…

And so I would see it for how precious it is,
God frosted it for me.
