When the Earth Stood Still

Updated: Jul 3


You sent to us one of

Your smallest beings

To remind us about

The sanctity of life

and our unretractable interconnectedness.

You have given us

Fever and crippled lungs

Like we have done to you

Through global warming,

Pollution and deforestation.

You have been crying out

For years and years

But we have not listened

So, you sent a tiny guardian

To wake us up.

May we drop our arrogance and greed.

May we realize the err of our way

And do whatever it takes

To repair the damage we have caused

And help you thrive once more.
