Earth Poem

Making The World A Better Place

We always regret when something has been lost, when we no longer have what we took for granted. We don't stop to consider what our acts will have on our home. We take it all with a pinch of salt. We abuse and use, we spit out and spit on, we are cruel and greedy, we are blinded by our own needs. Things must change. We can change. Let's hit the pause button and take a breath, look, listen, and see. We are capable of such horror and yet we are capable of such beauty.

Do You Dare?

A world of peace, a world of hope.
Not full of violence, crime and dope.

I want all that's bad to be stopped in its tracks.
I want all that's good and filled with all that it lacks.

I need this world to become quiet and calm.
I need all the innocent kept safe from harm.

I pray that the day will soon be here.
I pray all will be protected, all we hold dear.

No more starving, illness or war.
Let's step on through, open the door,

To a fresh beginning, a place of joy,
A wish for every girl and every boy.

May the earth heal and feel safe once more.
May it start afresh and forget all the horror and the gore.

Let it begin, step by step, let the change commence.
Let's wake up and use our common sense.

Mother Earth is in pain and struggles each day.
Let's all start to help her heal, take the hurt away.

I wish my dreams would come true,
That we can start to save this world, make it good, for me and for you.

Let us learn from all our mess,
Show more care and kindness.

To show respect for all living things,
To be grateful for what all this earth brings.

There is beauty under all the bad.
There is joy under all that's sad.

We need to find that space, that key!
We need to act now, open our eyes and see.

We have but one home, a land for all,
For each living thing that flies, walks and crawls.

We have to learn to share, to care.
It's time to stop the horror, come on, do you dare?
