Save the Earth

Our common mistake is keeping ourself busy
For nature we discover means an opportunity
Opportunity to reveal who we are
Nature only witness short enough
We just don’t realize long enough

When Nature gets killed
We may say Later
When Human race gets killed
I don’t think Nature say sooner

The more we talk the less we do
We are unique in our action
Cutting trees for words saying saving trees
What we call saver nature see scarer.

Long Centuries ago we might have seen sahara forest
Long Centuries Later we only see it in book.
Quite unfortunate for our children
They could and might have seen real trees
Later they will see it inside a gadget.
