"I've realized now that our world doesn't define us, we define our world."


Everyone says

Think in the present

Forget the future

But if you think ahead

You may be able to save something

Prevent something

Ahead I see clouds of grey

But not from a storm

Ahead I see shadows

Of high tall buildings

Ahead I see rivers and oceans

Not of water, but plastic

If I look ahead to future days

I could stop this

And save the world of

Everyone’s death day

Pick up trash

Turn off the lights

To stop the days ahead


The author's comments:

I always wonder what it would be like in the future if we continue to treat Earth the way we do today. I hope this poem brings awareness to people about treating the Earth kindly.
