We only have one world. I understand that not all of you care, but some of you must, and I don't want to be the only one who sees that we're killing our planet for selfish, mundane reasons. I want to stop the humans from killing themselves. Are you with me?

Clean up your act,
You need to move fast.
How many worlds do you think we got?
We have this only one, otherwise we’re all lost.
You can’t just shoot God and ask for another Earth,
You get one chance, so remember how you treat her.
Drop your guns and don’t bring war,
How can you call yourself human after all?
You kill, you cause pain and all you want is power,
But if all you taste is sweet, how do you decipher it from sour?
I’m not saying you have to be all goody-goody,
But you don’t have to be all bloody-bloody.
Think about everything mankind has done,
We should be making up for that, not running with guns.
Come on people, am I the only one thinking this?
Surely I can’t be alone in wanting to stop it.
We have one world and one world alone,
And you’re killing it.

Ha another poem that reminds me of one of mine. "Your world" I loved it and honestly I think the same thing.

Haha. I'll check it out. ;) And I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees things for what they are and refuses to live in a lie.
