Believe in a better tomorrow
believe that the air is pristine
believe that there’s nothing endangered
the future remains to be seen.

Believe in a world that is caring
believe that the oceans are clean
believe companies are recycling
the future remains to be seen.

Believe in a healthier planet
believe if together we lean
believe we can all do what’s needed
the future deserves to be green.

  1. Belief that is what we need is the first step. The second is to do something about it especially by speaking to those that represent you. Our consumer society sadly is blind the harm we are doing so we poets must shout out loud.

    1. I never litter and often pick up garbage when it’s at my feet. Biking on the Bay Trial the amount of litter I see is truly depressing at times but we must have hope.
