From offspring to offspring
Generations to Generations
An endless tree of life
Ever growing its branches
The population trend
Adding to its leaves
Breaking the balance
Too heavy for the trunk
As the trend continues
Soon the trunk snaps
All the leaves die,
But one thing for sure
The roots are still alive
Life still exist
Ready to start over
An endless cycle
Always repeating
The same mistake
Always reoccurring
When will we learn
And choose the right branch
The right one to walk on
But we can make a difference
And this is why
Ten years from now
I see myself green
Fixing the issue of climate change
Fixing the life of future generations
Ending the terrible and mistaken cycle
That once people thought fake
2019, the year it was fully green
Starting with energy source
Ending with total transformation
Making a peaceful territory
For anyone who wants to live in it
And later possibly spreading its wealth
To many other places
Not limited to Space.
2019, the year it was finally green.
