The World Hurts

Because the earth is allergic, the world hurts, and the seas are seasick. They constantly vomit ugly plastic, it's drastic, we have to think and start acting quick. Because the world is sick.

Poem written by Augustina, We Live Our Values

Why are you so passionate?
We are put here on this earth as stewards,
but we’re turning it into sewers.

 

And if this place, the entire Earth
is a place of worship,
what are we doing that shows this?

 

Our home, but if this is how we treat it,
and we neglect it
we don’t deserve it.

 

Do we really take care, in a place that we share
with other creatures
Are we really being fair?
And just?
Was this not a trust?

 

Do we treat the earth as a place of worship?
are we conscious of what we purchase?
or has it worsened?

 

It’s choking us.
It’s cursing us.

 

Are we conscious of every action having a consequence?
Every action having a reaction…
Every action taking just a fraction… of a second
to reconsider…

 

Do our beliefs and values, manifest in our actions?
tell me!
Tell me, because i’d really like to know.

 

Because the earth is allergic,
the world hurts, and
the seas are seasick.
They constantly vomit ugly plastic,
it’s drastic,
we have to think and start acting quick.
Because the world is sick.

 

And so are we.
The poison that we put into them.
Spoiling.
The poison that we put into them.
Destroying.
The poison that we put into them.
Enjoying.
The poison that we put into them.
the joys that see no end.
The poison that we put into them.
The poison that we put into us.

 

The thing is…

 

They say we’re all connected
and they are to be protected
they say we’re all connected
and they are to be protected
our diabolical actions are what’s
reflected

 

All the creatures that live in the oceans
are drinking cocktails of potions
that we produce through our re-fuse.
they don’t understand
our excuse.
They don’t get
why
we refuse to reduce our refuse.

 

When they are hungry,
they just want a taste,
but what they get
is death
by all our waste.

 

This place is more than just a planet in space
It’s our home.
This place is more than just a planet in space…
it’s our
HOME.
This place is more than just a
planet in space
it’s our home and there is no planet B.

 

I ask you…
do our beliefs and values, manifest in our actions?
Tell me…
do our beliefs and values, manifest in our actions?
Answer me…
do our beliefs and values, manifest in our actions?  

 

We, Us, Our, World. Hurts.
