We Fail To See

We fail to see
how relentless we can be.
Breaking, never holding back
‘til the destruction can be seen.

I try to mold
A better world to then uphold.
Sweating, bleeding, hands are shaking,
Dieing for a world untold.

Drink the water
The poisons you pass sons and daughters.
Can you taste the sensation?
Pollution is used to fuel slaughter.

Breathe the warm air
The life we breathe grows bare
Burning, sweating, can’t we see?
Embracing every hot sun’s glare.

Reap your rewards,
Say a prayer to your lord,
When the world is destroyed,
You’ll regret this was ignored.
