First and foremost I’d like to say, don’t let this world of ours fade away
This earth is for our mother, father and heirs
They at least, deserve clean air
Respect our lands, respect our seas, for is there another world that we can reach?
If not, then we are doomed, unless you have time for changes, this I assume
We all need to make an effort; we can’t carry on like this
We need to find a better way, or else this world we’ll miss
Don’t treat the world amiss

Here is my poem about the color brown.
Brown leaves crushed under my foot
Warm weather slowly fading
This is how I know summer is cascading
The woodland trees are going bare after flicking from red to brown
There’s coolness in the air and crunchiness to the ground
Oh soon it will be winter, where nothing shines like bronze
Oh how I love dear autumn the next one feels aeons
This world is our home, a wonderful dome, filled with such diverse beauty oh what have we done?
Our home chokes to death on invisible black flames of carbon, oh what have we done? What have we done?
Trees falling all around us, a great infestation of greed pulls them to the ground, oh what have we done? What have we done?
What do we need so badly that we’re destroying the things we need the most? Air, land, sea, sky, oh why, oh why, oh why? What have we done? Look what we’ve done!
The big brains say we’re progressing, but what is progression? To die before we’ve lived? We’ve no other place to go, so why are we cutting the world away like there’s an alternative?
There is no alternative
Oh what have we done? What have we done?
We’re progressing towards mass extinction, mass end of life, mass death run rife.
What have we done?
We can stop…
Small changes mean a lot
Giving up comforts for survival maybe our only revival – look what we’ve done, stop this… everyone?
Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s death…
