Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional


Time won't stop
For just one person
Flowers won't bloom
For just one person
Birds won't sing
For just one person
We need to work together

The ice won't freeze
For just one person
Earth won't thrive
For just one person
No one will change
For just one person
We need to work together

I can't lift
Ten thousand burdens
for the world
I'm just one person
We need to work together


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem, thinking about how much more we could be doing for our planet. It's our home and it's the only one we've got, in some houses about five seconds after something is out of place it's noticed, but when there's an oil spill, some people don't know about it for at least a week!
