The balance of life on Earth’s delicate,
We continue to mine, bore and extract,
Impact of man is hard to estimate,
If we don’t act what will nature exact;
Earthquake, flood, fire, and mountain rumble.
Gaia needs to recover from harsh treatment,
Lands have to unite, prevent the crumble,
Is it too late for the environment,
Effect of our efforts only be guessed,
Reverse the damage for a second chance,
If we succeed we will truly be blessed;
Waters team with life, animals prance
Earth fertile, sky bright, forest majestic.
What will it take to be altruistic?
