The animals are counting on us

The Earth is beautiful,

That should never change,

The earth is natural,

And it should stay that way.

Magical and wild,

The earth has always been,

Sunning and gorgeous,

It should always be.

But our earth is slowly losing,

What is used to be,

Temperatures are rising,

Making ice melt at sea.

Forests are dying,

Making creatures flee,

And I always have to ask myself,

Why could this be?

Making all this damage,

And all of this change,

Who is doing this I ask,

And the answer is as simple as that.


That is all,

That means you,

That means me.

But we must protect our earth,

As very best we can,

The animals are pleading for help,

We must protect the land,

The beautiful land,

Of hills and streams,

The one that we call home,

It needs our help,

And it needs it fast.

The animals are counting on us,

And we know that as a fact,

So go on and enjoy the world,

And make sure it stays healthy.

At that I must go,

The animals are waiting,

We must hurry my friends,

The animals are counting on us.
