Wake Up and Smell the Garbage


You are living in your own filth;

your hands are covered

with the germs of your waste.

You’ve thrown away everything

that made this earth unsoiled

and contaminated your lives.

Will you continue to exploit

the planet until its uses have

been completely depleted?

When you wait to decide to

restore the world ‘til it is too late

and everything lies in ruin?

I like this poem, it reminds me of the Bible verse in Revelations where it says:"But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time for the dead to be judged, and to give [their] reward to your slaves the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing your name, the small and the great, and TO BRING RUIN TO THOSE RUINING THE EARTH."-Revelation 11:18.

Very nice heart you have. ♥
