Loraine Lotter

Rookie (South Africa)

All Eyes Open


This so called planet that we call Earth
is busy dying because we gave birth
to new technology
and new found gold.
Greediness and selfishness
that cannot be controlled.

All the pollution and all the crime
All the cities and countries combined
Fires and volcanoes
rain pouring down
Open your eyes
and look around.

For in the future there'll be nothing
and then we can ask:
who will be laughing?
We all will die,
there's no doubt about that.

We'll be unable to survive,
that's a fact!
Maybe happiness now,
But tears later on.
In a couple of years
We'll all be gone.
