You never know when your last day will be,
So why do we pollute the wilderness and sea?
I remember when our forests were green, and reefs pink,
But now they are streaked with flames, and stained with ink.
We always say we will do anything to help,
But we barely even let out a yelp.
Sometimes I wonder why we don't care,
But people find it takes too much time to bare.
We forget that with every skyscraper we build,
We leave another life unfulfilled.
People think all our problems will be solved,
But they haven't done anything but evolved.
So look around, look at what you see,
Because you never know what your last day will be.
