All of us and all of them too©

The mouths we feed

are just not those

of our families,

our friends,

or neighbors,

It’s also

the trees,

the grass,

the ocean,

the earth

every animal

every insect

and the air we breath

Each part of is

connected to the rest

when one dies

it all dies

That includes us

It’s not just you

or me

it’s all of them too

Help make the world a better place

think about everything you do

and how it affects all of us

and all of them too.

My bones

My skin

My face

My head

My heart

My inner self

My outer self

My body

My Mind

It all belongs to me

It’s all a part of me

It all makes me whole

It all makes me empty

It all makes me happy

It all makes me sad

It all makes me think

It all helps me decide

My thoughts are mixed

My thoughts are uncertain

Sometimes they make me go back to the beginning

So I then can become certain

Certain of my beginning

Certain of my task

Certain of my foes

Certain of my allies

With all in place I’m ready, set, go…

Out into the world

With all that I have

All that I know

And all I intend to do

Look out world because I’ve begun

To turn to you and set you straight

The time has come to change this place

This place we call our home

Times are changing

Just like we do through the years

But now we must give this place

we call home a facelift

We must clean …

our air so we can breathe

We must clean ….

our water so we can drink

We must preserve …

what is good,

what is healthy

what is in danger

In danger of extinction

our birds

all of our food sources

our bodies

our selves

Give back to mother nature

All you have taken

Now she needs you as she has helped you

Help her before it becomes too late

We’re on a path

A path to extinction

Things can end faster than they began

Adam and Eve, Eve and Adam

No matter the name

No matter the forbidden fruit

Where there’s a beginning

There’s always and ending

We can only extend the time before our extinction

So make your choices

Choices control us

Choices change us

Choices lead us

Choices need us

Choices believe in us
