A poem about climate change

I don`t want my children to see the Earth die,

Without fish swim and without birds fly,

With no air for breathing, no water to drink,

When global conditions will make the land sink.


I don`t want emissions to stay in the air,

To fill our lungs and to spread everywhere,

To cause global warming, submerging the land!

To stop all this mess we should lend our hand!


The nature is dying together with us,

We wouldn`t exist here but for the green grass…

We must prevent nature from saying «farewell»-

In case it is dying, we`re dying as well!


What could human beings` activities mean –

To make our planet one big rubbish bin?!

No matter that you may be only a teen –

It`s never too early or late to be green!


To show our children the beauty of life;

To help polar bears and pandas survive;

To claim to the world that this talk should gain weight

Let`s firstly take part in the global debate!

I found your poem because I was searching for poems on climate change having written one myself. I really like your poem, and I hope it encourages more people to express their own feelings about the problem.

Nice realistic write. I would like to share this poem written by a Nepali Poet,Bhuwan Thapaliya here. Change Surrounded by desires, we are cold. Altitude of dearth makes it hard to breathe. Yet standing up the side of Mount Everest, we are willing captives of the things unseen before. We have never seen so many things happening at the same time above and below us. A slender twister forms in the convergence of the heat and the altitude’s chill. Something up above the earth is changing, is a new source of light kissing the sky? Paroxysmal blasts rocks the crater. Something down below the earth is changing, is a new source of lava feeding the flank? Everywhere we hear the roar of the lightening and the thud of the incandescent rocks. What’s really going on? Copyright 2009 Bhuwan Thapaliya
