She's Tired

by Barb Hensongispsaca

Our planet needs our help today;
she's been forgotten in the fray.
While we abuse and lay waste to
her beauty,we don't have a clue
of all the things we now will lose
if we don't change the way we choose
to hurt her as we strive to win
and take her places she's not been.
She shudders in rebellion now-
her back is broke, she's not sure how
to let us know we're short of days,
'cause now's the time to change our ways.
She cries for help, she's tired, too.
We need to plan what we should do.
