Stop Environmental Degradation

If I were you,
I will stop for once and ponder:
Where am I? Where am I going?
What am I taking away?
What am I bequeathing to posterity?
Is your legacy a pit of fire?
Is your legacy a scorched earth?
Is your legacy an inhospitable globe?
Is your legacy a barren planet?
Is your legacy a great Bang?

Then let it be known that
People and nations come and go
But nature and God live forever.
The will of God reigns supreme:
‘Neither will I ever destroy the world
With brimstone nor with flood waters'

If you do what God disallows,
You will have yourself to blame.
You may get temporary satisfaction
But after you, a thousand years
Will be a short period for God
To regenerate the earth with all its splendour
God's will shall be done according to His Word
