NaPoMo 23: The Time Has Come

The Earth is dying, killed by human kind
The unkind acts of living hell
We want it all but take no time to find
The art of living safe and well

The Earth is dying, but who really cares
Enough to seek a future quest
Our selfish greed that holds no future shares
Our kids will have no place to rest

The Earth is dying, in front of our eyes
Yet no comfort is found today
Despite the warnings from the lands and skies
We think it’s better done our way

The Earth is dying, and the time has come
To face the facts and do what’s right
There is no running back or going home
The time has come to stand and fight.
