These streetlights
prick into my eyes.
They, too, contribute towards
the increasing heat on this Earth.


We have lighted up our homes
but burnt our planet.
We have fired up the ozone
by emitting excess greenhouse gases.

There is no possibility
for us to think of our heredity.
We have already caused destruction
beyond repair and reconstruction.

We are still those fools
who think there is a tomorrow.
We are creating ‘development tools’
to construct infrastructure of sorrow.

But one good thing among all bad
is that we still have time at hand
and resources to save the planet
instead of waiting for us to lament.

We Still Have Time
