NaPoWriMo Day 25: Stream of Conscious

Hi! Yesterday in my environmental ethics course, we had to give presentations for our course capstone via video conference. One of my classmates shared some really inspiring poetry and she had us write stream of conscious poetry for 3 minutes and then share what we wrote on the topic of being a source of light (or something to that effect, I’m forgetting now). Today I decided to do the same thing, instead with the topic of “Environment.” To my surprise this actually brought up some further thoughts about lightness (and darkness). Here is what I came up with:

Environment

(Stream of conscious poetry)

The earth

Nature

We have to protect it

Turning round and round

Changing every day

Global warming

Climate change

Oceans boiling

Air temperatures rising

CO2 emissions

Smog

Animals are dying out

Will we?

Why do humans think

We’re in control

We are not perfect

Just because we’re intelligent

It does not mean we have all the answers

We are in the darkness sometimes

Feeling around in it

Can we find the light?

What if we can’t?
