What If?

What if all the colours faded away,

From the face of the Earth?

What if all the leaves shed,

From all the plants and trees?

What if the birds stopped singing,

Each morning when I woke up?

What if the oceans and the rivers dried out,

In a matter of years?

What if the soil turned dry,

On all of the land we know?

What if the air we breathe,

Turned all into smoke?

What if all the sounds we heard,

Were screeching of horns and screaming of living beings?

Will that be the day we realise

That there is no other place to call home

That there is no other air to breathe, no more water to drink

Will that be the day we pray

For the sun to shine again

For the flowers to bloom again

Will that day be the day our ears yearn

To hear the singing of birds

To hear the waves striking the shore

Will that be the day the silence of nature

Seem deafening

Will that be the day our hearts will ache

To see the green leaves again

To breathe fresh air again

Will that be the day when we won’t have an answer

To the tears in our children’s eyes

To the questions they ask us

Will that be the day all of us realise,

What have we done?

-C ❤
