why aren't we happy with what we have? Why must we always want more?
why do we do this day after day, jab after job , and chore after chore.
why don't we live our lives simple and plain.
why must there be more trouble, more hurt, and more pain?
For hours and hours we run in the rain,
and we just do it for more power to obtain.
Slowly but surely the Earth is turning to dust,
all for this craving this madness this lust.


The author's comments:
Perhaps it's my love for the Earth that causes me to write things like this. Perhaps I write things lilke this because I know if the world doesn't change for the better, it will change for the worse. The Earth is our home, and maybe we should start picking up after ourselves.
