Shall we crush the stars of the midnight sky,
like we have crushed the earth beneath our feet.
We will see apathy on the sunrise,
before mankind tastes their bitter defeat.
When will we learn we can't burn down the world,
because when the smoke clears all will be gone.
My friend what flags will we then fly unfurled,
when will mankind learn brain instead of brawn.
Protecting nature should be our concern,
not the collection of iconic green.
Hopefully lessons aren't too late to learn,
our planet is dying what does that mean.
Mankind has to live on the wind of change,
mankind's thinking has to be rearranged.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
