Awareness About Our Environment
by Sylvia Stults
Broken bottles and charred pieces of glass,
Wadded up newspapers tossed on the grass,
Pouring of concrete and tearing out trees.
This is the environment that surrounds me?
Poisons and insecticides sprayed on our food,
Oceans filling with thick oil crude.
All sea life destined to a slow, awful doom.
These are the things we are to consume?
Mills pumping out iron, expelling yellow fumes,
Airlines emitting caustic gases from fuels,
Weapons of destruction tested at desolate sites.
And this is the air that's to sustain life?
There has to be something that someone can do,
Like raise the awareness to those around you
That if we don't heed the problem at hand
It's your life that's at stake, the destruction of man.
Can Earth Be Earth?
Can earth be Earth when all its trees are gone,
And sudsy waters have become unfit,
And poisoned life no longer greets the dawn
With raucous sounds that death has caused to quit?
Will trees no longer wave, with limbs unfurled,
On hapless earth, that ever in orbit roams?
Will human ego sacrifice the world
To satiate its lust for pompous homes?
Will distant space look down on orb that's bald.
I now can hear the mother say,
"I was once called Earth.
But now, bereft of mirth, I weep.
That treeless orb's no longer Earth."
Do You Dare?
By Sandra Hearth
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?
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.
