Our World

Take a breath of fresh air
Let it out slowly
Savor it while it lasts
Because all the fresh air is going.

Disappearing slowly
into polluted clouds of smoke
Soon when you take in a breath
All you’ll do is choke

Say goodbye mother earth
And all her living creatures
Apparently our dying environment
Has not served as a teacher.

All the endangered species
Harder and harder to find
Well it’s time to stop searching
Because they’re all about to die

All our children’s futures
Are vanishing with our world
There wont be anything to live for
For next years boy’s and girls

Our world will be lifeless
Just like what once lived
If we don’t open our eyes up
And see what we have to give.

A Moment of time
can go a long way
In saving the earth
for another day

Recycle, reuse,
unplug, go green
Unless you don’t care about
What tomorrow will bring

Get smart, help out
Save this planet
Give life to its creatures
And all living things on it

Or let it become
It’s own natural disaster
Death and decay
From now to forever after.

I love your poetry Rynne. There is so much truth behind what you write and I really enjoy that. You are absolutley correct though. The earth is dying as it did once before and a lot of people do not seem to care at all. I will do everything that I can to help. I just wish that eveyone in this world felt the same way we do. Great writing my dear. Keep it up.
