The Earth This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   The sky, a pretty watercolor

painted with one swift brush

The forest, an endless rainbow

picturesque and lush

The grass, a beautiful carpet

where we come to play

The flowers, happy children

blossoming with each new day

The mountains, purple shadows

of people from afar

The bushes, quiet observers

who watch the passing car

And me, a humble human

looking at the peace

Why can't we all live like this?

Why did we let it cease?

As I turn my face away

I see the beauty fade

Why don't we just clean up

the big mess we have made?
