We use you for glue

Maybe for tape

Use you for everything

We take and take

Use you to learn

And for morals

Ignoring our own

Dying like coral

Our seas are sick

Our planet is weak

We use everything

Trickles become leaks

If you could speak

Would we change?

Or would we ignore

Suffering and pain

Why not

We are doing it now

Our planet is screaming

In swirls of dark clouds

Her children are dying

As we stand alone

Immune from what we cause

Until it’s our flesh and bone

I hear you cry

As I lie awake

The future is told

In past mistakes
