NaPoWriMo Day 5: Wave Of Denial

In case you haven’t noticed, for NaPoWriMo, I’m writing about environmental issues. I try to keep a positive tone when I think about this subject most of the time. However, it makes me sad to see the destruction and sheer lack of awareness of some of these problems. So, the following poem is a result of some of that frustration. We need to raise awareness of what could happen if we don’t take any (or enough) action.

A Wave of Denial

A storm is coming

Tornadoes

Earthquakes

Unseasonable warmth

Hurricanes

All come together

To form a tidal wave that has the power

To wash over us all

The forces of nature are changing

But people are not

Bad attitudes

Disbelief

Apathy

Denial

All come together

To form an ignorance

That has the power

To wash over us all

This could be our downfall
