Look Outside

©

Published: December 2008

Look outside, see the trees.
Watch the flowers in the breeze.
Things won't be like this in a year or two
If polluting is all we do.
Seize the night,
Seize the day.
Things won't always be this way.
Thousands of people are dying.
In the night, you hear children crying.
Let's stop the war.
Our people are sore.
The world can't help itself.
Who cares about your wealth?
Help me to help you.
Show the world what you can do.

I like this poem because it talks about how the outside won't be the same in a couple years because of pollution and I can relate to that because due to the virus we can't go outside and the outside probably won't be the same.

It's an amazing poem! I'm also an 11 year old kid, and I'm having difficulties writing a poem about pollution for my science project. Any tips?

It is difficult to believe that 11 year old do care for environment. God bless all the children who care for their environment.

Simple but strong. I need to address students of Classes 1 through 10 at my school about Peace and the Environment, and this is perfect as even the smaller kids will understand this. Now I can save the more difficult poems for an older audience.

Great write. Words that need to be paid attention to. Read "Stop to Think" for more like this.
