The Time

Written by: Melani Udaeta

We should have taken the time 
to look upward and around;

We did too much, it was too 
late
To reverse the damage, 
close the gate

Simple living, just too complex;
Simple gifts we squandered 
away 

I hope you take the chance to 
see,
To learn from our history

Taste the joy all around, 
Take care of the planet 

Do what we did not,
We should have taken the time
