Help Us

Sun, 02/02/2020 - 14:39 -- Halah

 The world is on fire and flooding as well,

The most powerful country is going to hell

 

The princess and prince have stepped down from royalty

And rights are debated as if we aren’t dying

 

The climate is changing and we’re trying to help

But when adults don’t listen, there’s not much to do

 

We try and we try, thinking of things,

Yellow and pink and softness of living

 

There’s  flowers and sunshine and falling in love with life

Happiness, and softness, and aesthetics and our imagination

 

There’re sounds to love in the midst of all this

To drown out all the problems as a way to stay happy

 

We listen to happy songs, ones that make us feel alive

To drown out the sounds of children crying on the news to get back to their families

 

Or be free from war for once in their lives, even for a second

They’re human too; why can’t we see that?

Our world
