Till Death Do Us Part (standard:poetry, 103 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Jun 10 2010Views/Reads: 1533/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
When do we give up on each other? In our relationship with the ecosystem, we haven't much time left to consider...

The trees, the ocean 

Have set life to motion 

And years of this play 

Have but fashioned the day 

But in retrospect 

Have we seen 

Have we met 

Do we mend what was broken 

Take warnings as token 

Don't we know what has passed 

Knowing this cannot last 

All the damage now done 

Was it all just good fun 

Was it worth all the while 

To demolish and smile 

Does death have to be 

Part of life every mile 

Is there time yet to turn 

Have we trees left to burn 

Can there be peace on earth 

Is there time left to learn?
