Saving planet Earth

Saving planet Earth

It seems this world be dying
Pure love is hard to find
As beauty turns to glamour
And each loves their own kind
Considering folk below him
With manner hard and cold
As youth is always worshipped
And they cast away the old.

This world’s not big on wisdom
You can see that in the acts
Of those who should know better
As they distort the facts
About things that really matter
And fill the world with lies
With hearts so very brittle
As the child within each dies.

Oh, glory Hallelujah
What happened to the heart?
As one man kills another
And the earth gets ripped apart
Why cannot these people learn?
That deep within the truth does burn.

I guess it does not matter
If this be destiny
But let us try the love approach
Maybe that’s meant to be
Let’s nurture earth, who nurtures us
And delve into our souls
Because it’s each man’s heritage
To let life make them whole.

    Hi Peter, hope all is going well with the family. Well Peter, the sentiments are spot on with this one. This was never the way it was meant to be. Once again you lay the truth before us and once again you know no one listens. Man has become the destroyer of his own world. The day will come when, as you say, man shall turn from his destructive ways, but it will be tooi late. My Friend this is another fine write from the golden pen. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE

    Hi Michael, sometimes I really want to scream at these idiots, but we are absolutely powerless to do anything about it. I wrote my first Greeny poem over forty years ago, and now it is getting worse and worse. But I will keep writing, Thank you for your wonderful comments, my friend....Peter
