Look at that!
It’s the sky, it’s blue.
And look at the ocean,
We don’t have that anymore.
And at the mountains,
And at the trees,
We don’t have those either. We don’t have any of this anymore. 

Excuse me!
Ok so if you could just
Hang on, don’t buy that!
Stop, wait!
Don’t just throw that away!

Please start making changes…
It doesn’t need to be drastic,
It doesn’t need to be large,
It just needs…to be everyone.
Even if this won’t change your life,
It will change mine.
