Are You Scared Yet - Poem by Giselle Miller

Silent Murderers descending on us
Tiny poisons we once thought were no fuss
Have become a threat to our very lives
Endangering the world where we once thrived

Our beautiful mother that birthed these trees
The air, the sky, and the happy salty seas
We’ve abused, rejected her hospitality
Overstayed our welcome in her sanctuary

Our aunts and uncles we’ve beaten and worn
Have fought back with a vicious scorn
Stormy clouds of anger and treason
Ruining the beauty of each season

The time has come to pay our debts
Now I ask you “Are you scared yet? ”
