We Have Plundered Creation.

I stand here amazed at the beauty
Of all the things that I see
The mountains, the sea, and the valleys
All spread around before me.

The birds and all other creations
Were put here for us to enjoy
But we didn’t take care of these blessings
We plundered and began to destroy.

So what is the result of this plunder?
What punishment do we deserve?
We punish ourselves, for all nature
Can no longer our lives preserve.

What have we left for our children?
What will their future be?
Can we snatch any life from the jaws of death
To reverse the damage we see?

We are caretakers of God’s Creation
Our shame is obvious now
But it’s never too late to wipe clean the slate
Or at least show our children how.

What can one person do? I hear you ask
How about one plus one?
If we all do our bit it will make a lot
A big task, but let’s get it done.

Wyn Barratt.
