Extinction


How can the world really be at peace,
When it is slowly being destroyed?
When any species becomes extinct,
It will definitely leave a void.

How will we tell the future generations,
That they don't have the pleasure,
Of knowing and understanding
How much these animals were a treasure?

Too many species are no longer here,
Because man just could not foresee,
How he'd lead them to their extinction,
By his completely senseless killing spree.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
