I Know Why 
Deborah E Joyce


I know why things are changing

people crying, everyone complaining

look around, what do you see?

The need is great, yet people flee


But things are not my fault, we say

the someone to fix it is not “we”, but “they”

Aren’t “they” the same as “we”?

All under one family tree?


The path to take must be together

no matter what the kind of weather

On this planet, we all had a part

together, from the very start


it’s not the planets fault it’s bleeding

her beaches and coral reefs receding

She doesn’t have much time, you know

mother Earth, her hemisphere cannot grow


yet, we ignore her, and also each other

looting and killing each of our sisters and brothers

This is all I can tell you, it comes from my heart

this was my thought from the very start


we have heaven above with the ground below

let’s turn on our light and let each 1 glow

I think I know why the sky is burning

smoke inhaled has nostrils burning


I remember when our skies were blue

I know why everything is churning  – do you?
