By
   Our planet,

so full of life.

Animals and

humans

live on it.

Once it was

so clean,

so bonded

together in harmony.

But humans

have relentlessly

cut and slashed at it.

Humans have plastered

concrete on its skin,

covered it

with buildings.

Quickly, humans are

chopping down

its life,

cutting down

our air supply

and filling our air

with toxics.

We fight

each other

and we have

enemies.

There is hatred

but

there is also love

in this world.

Why can't it be

all love?

all peace?

all clean?

We are destroying

our mother,

our earth.

But at the same time

we are destroying

ourselves.

It's we humans

who have caused

these problems.

And it's we humans

who have to solve

these problems.

No one can do it

for us.
