It is time we saw beacons of light,
Cropping up like mushrooms with a differing frequency.
It is time we came together to save Planet Earth,
The one who provides us with all our needs and comforts of life,
The one who brings solace in moments of grief.
Remember her bright blue sky covered with polluted clouds,
Her chalk-white beaches littered with non-biodegradable stuffs,
Her turquoise sea water where thousands of liters
Of chemicals are poured, threatening marine life.
Remember all these.
We cannot be so ungrateful on our part,
