I dreamt of a place so beautiful,

So pristine, clean and picturesque.

A place abundant in flora and fauna,

Where untouched species spoke for themselves.

Lush green environments were filled with chirping birds,

Deep blue waters of the ocean were filled with exotic aquatic life.

Sunrise and sunset were mesmerising and dreamy.

Biodiversity was at one with Mother Nature.

 

I dreamt of a time long ago,

When we worked hard during the day to earn our keep,

And rested peacefully during the night under the heavenly skies.

Technology did not get in the way of our basic lives,

We communicated in person and were unified as a community.

We looked out for each other,

Family values were upheld strongly.

 

Now the pollution clouds the heavens,

Sunset and sunrise...I have to imagine.

 

I fear that,

My children and their children and so on,

May never know the beauty of true life.

Instead, they will live in a crowded world full of greed,

Advanced technology and virtual playgrounds.

Food will be manufactured, not grown;

And species of life will become extinct one by one,

As the world is slowly covered by dark clouds

That keep the light from reaching us.

 

I will continue to dream of a better time,

And make a positive change.

What will you do my friend?
