I grew up in a world,
of seven billion people.
Everyday this number grows and grows
and trust me it shows and shows.
From the depleted renewable resources,
to the overflooded landfills,
and infections and viruses,
there's no running from the destruction we make.
Similar to King Midas,
everything we touch seems to break.
But I also witness a planet,
full of passion and benevolence,
one sprouting with grins,
let's not forget the beautiful people!!
from the dazzling smiles,
to the unique hair,
full of natural energy,
and precious flare.
A world filled with problem solvers,
intellectuals, charisma and peacemakers,
everyone has their own role in society,
most people don't even notice theirs.
So it's hard to believe
ridiculous to conceive
that anyone can hate a species,
that provides so much joy.
I remember in my Bio Class,
learning there was more in common genetically
between black & white man,
there was between,
two emperor penguins.
We are social creatures,
and bounce ideas off each other.
So when the worldy environmental,
and social issues,
and injustices arise,
Sure we may quarrel,
but when times of trouble occur
you better be damn sure
we will group up and find a cure!
