We as beings have lost our way
so much money spent on war
on putting stuff up into space
while neglecting the human race
and this earth on which we live.
So much time exploiting resources
until the time comes when there will be no recourse
we will have gone way too far down that road
of extinction and self annhialation
and all those species we see trophy hunted
that are no more will make life duller
will make it much poorer and less varied
take a kid to the zoo and watch their eyes
different animal species give them such delight
when do we become so brutal and lose sight of this?
why are we not doing more to change it?
There is no planet B but we are in search of this
is this what we are? A parasite species?
abuse, consume and the discard the empty carcass
humanity is living life just like a car crash
my god! are we to blind to see
that we have become this terminal disease
we are like a festering sore on the face of beauty
we have taken paradise and destroyed it
as if it was an act of duty
and those who rule and those who govern
are too corrupt and too old to care about the future
they just want the money and power now
they don’t have vision of what they wish to leave
no dreams or even legacies that will define them centuries on
they don’t care they will be long gone
so it’s up to us to bring about change
build a future sustainable and brave
that put’s us back within nature, not outside of it
nurturing and tending all of it’s needs which will reduce the risk
of humanity tripping over the edge of extinction
and see as a race of distinction
that learnt to evolve and understand the truth
that we need to be more mindful in all that we do
and create a better world and environment for both me and you.
