Take me back to when the world was more green
When you looked around and everywhere was clean
Take me back to when we could rely on the earth
To satisfy our hunger and quench our thirst
Take my back to when the air was fresh and clear
Without black soot from automobiles and industries
Take me back to when I could dance in the rain
Knowing it will do more good than harm
Take me back to when the only hills we knew
Were natural and not man-made from heaps of trash
We blame the big factories forgetting that we too take part
The earth also is polluted under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, and broken the everlasting covenant.
Rivers run brown and full but not of water
Now a cradle of diseases and pests
Global-warming once unheard of
Is our day to day reality
What have we done to our beautiful planet??
Poaching and killing our wildlife
Let’s care for the earth
It starts with us…
