We’re not watching the pot so the water is boiling.
We reap but we do not sow, the soil is eroding.
We want more power so the night sky is glowing.
We keep the skyscrapers lit, the birds don’t know where they’re going.
We encroach into nature and the forests are burning.
We are too many people and the land is sliding.
We want more space so habitats are fragmenting.
We can’t get along so carcasses are all that’s decomposing.
We’re in a give and take relationship that isn’t functioning.
We’ve gone too far without really even knowing.
We ought to stay still for a moment and hear the trees talking.
We would hear them talk, they are sharing a warning.
We are hearing a hum and it is the sound of the earth crying.
We want the wrong kind of change and the glaciers are melting.
We are humans but we are not really being.
We hesitate and the loss is devastating.
We turn the other cheek to a world that is drowning.
Heaven could be a place on earth but it’s getting tired of waiting.
