Earth, teach me to be louder than an
elephant so my teacher can hear me.

Earth, help me to jump like a kangaroo
so I can jump better than everyone.

Earth, teach me to slither like a snake
so I can go wherever I want.

Earth, teach me to be like a lion
so I can rule the world.

Earth, teach me to be a tree
so I can be calm.
