Behind the darkest of closed curtains, I stand
I am tantamount to the forgotten shadow on your wall
On the surface I'm a cat in the headlights,
terrified and clueless
Scrape the cat off the road and you see what is truly hidden inside
a creature begging for change
I am well aware that we humans destroy Earth.
as all of you act ignorant to the facts that are right in front of you,
I'm trying to to rise above and clear the fog from your eyes.
Our planet is being destroyed right in front of our face
and I scream to you to realise what you are doing
Wars are going on everywhere.
Polution is getting thicker in the skies,
no wonder you all are so blind to the gruesome horrors taking place!
Our children will have to suffer because of us,
as they starve and are beaten
They cry out for help, but like my voice, they are silenced
We are the annoying whispering you hear, begging for change
Innocent animals are being mutilated and tortured
just to satisfy the greedy human's wants!
Inhumane acts of violence towards beautiful creatures
they have done no wrong, nor do they contribute in the destruction of our world
Yet they suffer greatest of all
Their homes stolen, their lives taken
We are in another mass extinction
This planet has lost it's dinosaurs and gone through an ice age
It's been through so much already
How soon until the planet gives up and we all die?
If we don't do something soon, and fast.
behind the dark curtain you throw me under to quiet my voice,
I am one of your children
I am one of many creatures suffering
I am calling out for help
I am you, and I am me
