Believe

Imagine
all it would take
would be for everybody
To simply
believe...

Waste less
Use less
Want less
Procreate less

and care more
about the world you inherit
and the one you will leave behind

This is the turning point
The tipping of the scale
The point of no return

Now
In our time

We are the ones who will decide
Whether we will establish
A sustainable relationship
With this planet that gave birth to us
And sustains us all

Or not

For it is now within our power
To preserve or destroy
This place we call home

If you are a believer in God, of any faith
You may rest assured
that he will not forgive you
for carelessness and neglect
of the very hand that feeds you
and protects you from the cold dark void

Ours and the next few generations
These are the people who will make this choice
We get to decide what the vision for mankind's future will be

Creationist, or evolutionist
who would deny the unique expression
of life on earth.

By chance, by design, or by both
The very fabric and substance of the universe
Has risen up through the conscious mind and body of man
To contemplate it's own existence

Surely we can give some thought as to our future as well

Imagine
all it would take
would be for everybody
To simply
believe...
