The river’s like a flow of tears
The wind is a dying breath.
Nature once was beautiful,
But now it’s on the edge of death.
Pollution is spreading far and wide.
The world is being destroyed.
Fast food is killing the rainforests,
And bombs are being deployed.
The compassion for life
Is the main quality
that most people have lost.
We’re the ones killing this planet,
And stopping ourselves has too much cost.
Nature’s being wrecked and killed,
And no-one cares or wonders why.
Thousands of animals need our help,
But nobody hears their cry.
I want this call to be heard soon,
So that creatures besides me and you,
Can have value not just as leather handbags,
And be acknowledged as living things too.
The plants need help as much as animals,
But no-one wonders why flowers bloom late.
The bees are endangered
And because of this, someday
Plants might not pollinate.
I want all of nature to be treated with respect,
And all people to open their eyes,
So that all children of Mother Nature
Can live healthy, strong, free lives.
