The Earth Slowly Fading

Everywhere I look, all I can see is garbage

To my left I see my friend, drowing in pollution

To my right I see another suffocating on plastic

Above me there is so sun, no light, no warmth

Smog covers the sun, allowing little light to seep through

The ice at the poles begins to melt, taking homes away from many

How many have to die before people realize their impact on the world

Trees wilt, flowers die, bees disappear, life begins to disappear

Yet the people do nothing to help

My sight is fading, I'm losing energy, and soon I will be no more

Please, stop this death, stop the pollution, stop the destruction of the world

This poem is about: 
Our world
