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.

Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer.

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!

I agree with the other people who commented. This is sad and true...
