I long for a life where the wilderness strives
One where unity is the focus of our lives
Living with the trees, instead of cutting them down
No more pollution, in which we all drown.
A wild world with life so lush
No corporations, or a 9 to 5 rush.
I want to feed a moose from out of my hand,
And walk barefoot on pristine sand.
I want to breathe fresh air full of natural scent
Not have a landlord screaming for rent
Unfortunately that dream life is unattainable
Because our society is far from sustainable.
But I don’t want to be found.
I’m in distress….
But I’ve never been happier.
I see a world burning,
But I don’t feel the heat.
I smile and I laugh,
While the planet is in retreat.
There’s a voice that says “do something”
But every time I try, I go in reverse.
I’ve given up and focused on me,
I was fighting against an incurable disease,
That crippled my mind, in a time of need.
Now I don’t care if our species succeeds.
Death and decay
life is in dismay
the world is on fire!
What have we done?
we blackened the sun,
and now our world is on the pyre.
If life is what we make it, why are we in decay?
Is it a sign of our doing; did we go astray?
We talk about the planets rescue, then we argue and fight.
While we’re at our differences, this goal is never in sight.
Our political rules damper the chance, to cure our problems so,
Society doesn’t really help either, when morals are consistently low.
Is there a fix, is there a way, to actually save ourselves?
Or are we destined to be extinct fossils, that are found on another being’s shelf?
