How?

Living in the here,

Living in the now.

Asking myself why?

Asking myself how?

Asking the world,

What did we all do?

To deserve this uncertainty,

To receive this truth.

But she’d answered before asked,

If truth be known.

She answered through fire,

Through hurricanes blown.

Through drought and through flood.

Through overcrowding and spilt blood.

She answered before I asked,

Clearly and understood.

We’re dying in the here,

We’re dying in the now.

And we don’t need to ask why,

For we already know how.

 

We Are All

We are all one colour,

We are all one creed.

Whether here,

Or there overseas.

To the stars we’re the same,

As we are to disease.

Only your eyes see a difference,

Only your minds decree.

If we don’t banish futile tribalism,

If we can’t come together as one.

We as a species on earth,

Will soon be over, done.

And with us all other life,

Will be burnt from this rock.

It’s there for all to see,

It shouldn’t come as a shock.

We are all one colour,

We are all one creed.

And only together as one,

Can we save humanity.
