Watch me recite this poem with poise, on @_soulscribbles_
What have we done!
The planet is choking
Earth’s lungs, The Amazon is burning
Extreme temperatures, ice caps melting
The face of the earth is changing.
Resources are not enough left,
Ground water level is going down
The time, is running out.
Those who were born just yesterday,
And did nothing to cause climate change,
Will also face its consequences
We are all together in this mess
It is now our collective responsibility,
Let’s join hands to fight this calamity.
Every species suffers because of our careless actions,
Let’s not be mute spectators to this mass extinction.
Pick up the garbage which you did not throw
Bid adieu to single-use plastic, say no to straw
Use resources wisely; I don’t even have to say it,
Educate yourself on ways you can do your bit.
Remember, every little step counts,
We must act quick now.
Greta Thunberg is not alone.
We shall all protect our home
Whether 16 or 60 years old,
Together, we can achieve so much more.
