Don’t Worry About The Planet

We give ourselves too much credit

believing that we destroyed the planet

and we give ourselves too much credit

believing that we are going to save it.

 

The planet doesn’t need us to save it

the planet is fine

we might not be

but the planet is fine

and it will be

with or without us.

 

If we pull our heads out of our asses

we might be able to keep the environment

hospitable for human life

but either way

the planet is fine

don’t worry about the planet.

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
