story of cost and sacrifice

when asked,

“..would you like a sustainable future?.”

the humans asked,

“..how much?.”

it’s sustainable, that’s the point,

just some of your time and energy.

if you ask “..how much?.” again I swear I might get angry,

you don’t get it, no cost to life,

this is the first downfall, that we kill.

we say life’s a circle in nature,

the way is to exist in this,

staying here is not sustaining,

the earth’s quite clear, we need to start changing.

I’d like to say that this is not literally,

but times up, I’m afraid, missed your chance to be saved.

the gods or the planets, the burning light or absorbing amulets,

don’t matter what you believe,

plant more trees, just plant more trees.
