Poem -

As Greta Thunberg speaks....

As Greta Thunberg speaks....

Her words incisors in the conscience of mankind
ripping our complacency apart.
We turn deaf ears to a subject that we find,
reveals the many to be stupid and not smart.

And still unchecked the poison haze continues to surround us
with  growing seas reclaiming  living land.
With apathy we walk  through life ignoring all the fuss
too lazy, blind or dumb to understand

This precious world,this treasured gem,we’re given it on loan
to nurture and create our paradise.
Instead we poison it with methods all home grown,
and watch it die before our very eyes.

Poor Mother Earth.  She gives and gives, and we take and take and do not replenish from what we take.  Greta Thunberg has courage to point out what most do not want to hear...and dismiss her because of her young age, which is a shame.  The truth hurts sometimes....and change only comes when people listen and motivate others to care and get our leaders to represent the majority.  Great awareness write, Lodigiana!  xo ;)

Hi LO!!....I think I must have written at least 10 different poems and postings on my blog about this subject matter......I am so happy to see you shining more light on it... and we're not the only ones.... there are huge movements and organizations fighting the good fight right now..... However...... It's good and talented souls such as yourself that have a great power within this arena.... you are planting seeds in the minds of readers that may not have otherwise even considered the urgency of this truly "Major Disaster Waiting To Happen!!"...... so what I'm trying to convey is that no voice is too small or too large where dear Mother Earth is concerned!!..... you've done a truly beautiful thing here..... and done it with your own unique and truly compelling style!!..... God love's you dear poet sister..... keep up the awesomeness that is LODIGIANA!!......PINNED!!.....Lots of Love to you and yours!!.....I am your cyber-friend and ever-admirer..... Tony xo.  : )

Hi Tony....there are times when I become so dispirited about how our planet is changing and how quickly the roller coaster seems to be rumbling along that I wonder if we can ever change anything...?? people need to speak up, look at the science and see just what is happening...I find it so hard to understand how an opinion exists encouraged by  the most powerful  man on the planet that 'Climate change' does not exist... lies!!! fake news!!  WTH!! where does  that thinking come from..?  I have had a good life but my children and grandchildren  have theirs ahead of them and I  dont want to leave them with  a  planet that is tettering on the edge of disaster  but what else can  I do? It's all such a worry Tony..but I guess all  we can do is our individual bit and raise awareness wherever we can, whenever we can.. Bless your heart dear man.. your spirit has such a connection with this earth..keep up the writing and making people aware and maybe , just maybe we can initiate change?  Love  to you and yours always.. your friend  xxxx
