Make a Change

Tranquilize dark wild inner beast,
transform every impossible.
Each insecurity retreats,
all actions held accountable.

Embrace my greatest enemy,
to feel good with my own person.
Erase spilled oil stains from the sea,
stop the trade of gold for poisons.

No clouds of smoke float high above,
nor erased flora and fauna.
No abuse towards natures love,
nor winters as warm as saunas.

Empty oysters do not hold pearls,
exchange all weapons for a life.
Withering greens bloom in this world,
sprinkle foods with pesticides.

Most mistakes do not fix themselves,
lead by example, start today.
Mind, hearts, and hands can slowly delve,
till everyone finds their own way.

Try to listen and take a stand,
while executing a new plan.
Try to help others understand,
while extending an opened hand.
