Life hangs on a thread in the web we weave
Open up your eyes do not be deceived
Our World, our Rock, our Ocean of Life
Is in dire need, facing great strife
Look around you, can you not see?
The pollution, the extinctions, it’s not just me
Who cries for the Forests, the Oceans, and Birds
And laments for the wild beasts long lost herds
Look Up! Be aware, please wake up
Stop burying your heads in your coffee cups
It’s time to STOP! Take stock and account
For our actions of choice is paramount
We worried about ‘The End’ in 2012
We have witnessed nothing yet as we destroy ourselves
Fukushima a time-bomb ticking
The calendar for the future, is our conscience pricking?
What mess are we leaving our Children to come?
Who would have thought Man could be so dumb
His desire of Greed will be the end of the line
As his species too will shrivel and decline.
What goes around comes around, So True
Do you think this Cycle does not apply to you?
Well listen well and think on this
As the Oceans Boil and the Mountains Hiss
Because all is a cycle and all do connect
What we do unto others the World too reflects
So clean up your act, conserve and retrain
The way that you live, honour your domain
Pick up your litter, recycle your waste
Honour our Mother-Gaia awaits
Show her respect; get rid of your sprays
Lengthen your lives by altering your ways
The scales now tip as we hang by a thread
Please heed my words of what I’ve just said
The time is right NOW! You can no longer ignore
That Nature’s Power will devour Man’s flaws
He thinks he’s so mighty, he travels in Space
Yet he destroys his own planet and the Human Race
Nature is patient, and Nature will renew
The poison man brought that killed him off too
And the Cycle begins for another Billion years
As the Earth starts anew forgetting Mans tears
Is this what you want, Is this what you seek?
Then be responsible for your actions
OR THE FUTURE IS BLEAK!

While I try to remain positive, sometimes you have to shout out at the world to wake up to what we are doing to ourselves,
Fukushima has been on my mind recently and with good reason. as the Government in the U.K. gave permission for the go ahead of building of a Massive Nuclear Plant in Hinkley Point. Protests are underway!and they have my support.
My poem speaks my Heart.
Wake Up People and help wake up your neighbours to what we are doing to our Planet of Choice!
Thank you for reading, and I leave you with these Two Videos. The longer one has more disturbing information.
