About This Song

At the Moonseed Teen Leadership Camp Session of Journey Camp in 2013 we talked about self love and different ways of giving self support. As a group we made a list of ways to use self love muscles.

Alternative lyrics:

Oh, Mother Mary. Oh, Mother Mary.

 

Verse:

Remember your sisters walking beside you, together we’re changing the world.

Remember your brothers walking beside you, together we’re changing the world.

 

Every time you care for the world, you are healing yourself. (2x)
