Already Gone

Why do we do this

To the place where we live

That has so much beauty

And so much to give

We take for granted

All the things she gives

She's like a mother who nurtures

As we lay in our cribs

But instead of treating her

With the utmost respect

We continue to pollute her

Until nothing is left

Destroying the beauty

That the earth once held

Lost in the pollution

Blinded by its spell

Soon we'll regret

All the things we have done

But it will be too late

And nature will be gone.
