'' Gold And Diamonds That Glistened '' - Poem by Bri Mar
In our search for the ‘'TRUTH''
We are being uncouth,
What we do is destroy the facts,
When we finally stand in Gods witness booth,
We'll be tried for our criminal acts.
As wildlife disappears,
We ignore our worst fears,
That one day there'll be nothing left,
To date we've refused to shed any years,
The Human Being is guilty of theft.
Their habitats gone,
Due to our lack of brawn,
As our population continues to rise,
Regarding resources, we are way overdrawn,
But we refuse to open our eyes.
It has to be said,
When extinct they're dead,
Hindsight will not bring them back,
Our existence here now hangs by a thread,
Our very survival is under attack.
We need food and water,
Yet the human plotter,
Thinks riches will sustain them forever,
Soldiering on like lambs to the slaughter,
All life we are likely to sever.
We need to see,
That for us to be free,
We need all other life forms to thrive,
Without their input, there's no you or me,
We must fight to keep everything alive.
As the temperature soared,
Soon nothing roared,
Everything that breathed is deceased,
The warning signs we totally ignored,
From our ignorance, we've been released.
Despite our ways,
We give ourselves praise,
To the consequences nobody listened,
As we arrived at the end of our days,
‘' Gold And Diamonds Still Glistened ‘'
