Treasure Island

Monica Hinson


Let the Sun Shine


We pollute the water
We poison the land
We burn all our trees
For supply and demand

The sun won’t shine
And frankly, I don’t blame it
We screwed this world up
But we can still save it

We use nuclear attacks
And kill the human race
We wipe our whole cultures
Cuz we don’t like their face

The sun wants to shine
But it cannot bare
To watch us destroy ourselves
Without even a care

We need the sun
It’s our source of life
So don’t let the sun die
Because of our strife

Work it all out
I know you can do it
Don’t just kill, people
Try to work through it

    Your poem adds real meaning to how important it is not to take for granted what we have. Our planet is our only home and should be treated with dignity and respect....
    Please keep up the good work your doing! (Smile)

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
