Look at the World

Look at the world,

with all the volcanoes,
oceans,
prairies,
and deserts,

with cliffs jutting into the sea,
and skyscrapers jutting into the sky,

with all the light pollution,
war zones,
melting icecaps,
and landfills,

look at the world.

My favorite part is how you transitioned in the third verse from nature's creations to ours. This is an AWESOME poem that I do not think can be improved upon.

I agree with everyone else; it's scary because it's real. You did a great job, keep it up!

Sadly, this is frighteningly realistic.
