Didn’t We?

Didn’t we all give comfort to ourselves
by allowing thoughts to slip through our minds?

Guilty but subtle thoughts like:
Nothing will ever happen to our earth.
It’s fine.
Someone will have a cure

Only to be shocked at the results that occur
from not helping the Earth be heard.

My sole purpose here is to inform you
that you yourself can change our planet for the better.
Small actions will impact lives one day.

Pick up litter whenever you can,
use bikes
share transportation
walk, talk to others, spread the word.

This climate change issue needs recognition,
this can not be solved with just a ban.
Don’t throw our future out the door.
We must not allow life to cease forevermore.
