Environmentally Safe

Note: This poem was written June 20, 1993. I was 17 years old and fresh out of high school. I am pulling this oldie out just in time for Earth Day.

When I walk along the path
I see the work of human’s wrath.
Where things are thrown carelessly away
and nothing beautiful will ever stay.
For only in your deepest soul
where pride and caring take their toll.
Only in a few more years
where no one will shed beautiful tears.
The world, our home, our lives, our pleasure
discarded to the bottom like sunken treasure.
The beauty that we once had known
has been taken and carelessly thrown.
Only two answers can save this Earth
God’s destruction or help from “new” birth!

Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. -Voltaire
