In the End

When humanity exhausts the last fish, Exhumes all that remains, Severs the final tree, And devours the last drop of pure water, Only then will they perceive the devastation wrought by their hands.

Our tears, a paltry offering, Unable to hydrate and nurture the fruits of our actions.

Only forgiveness and compassion for ourselves can avert this looming disaster.

Our future hangs in the balance, Blowing in the hurricanes and tornadoes, Quaking the earth and shaking our souls to the core.

Yet silence stifles the world’s cries, Ignorance, a virulent disease that consumes our tears and steals our breath, For the sake of popular opinion.

There is no freedom after suffocation.

Climate change, a grim reality, no longer a jest.
