The Climate Child

The world where youth's dreams sing free, Amidst nature's cries, we take our stand, Voices soft, like leaves on the breeze, For Earth's health, we extend our hand. The era of climate's firm hold, Our fate intertwined with choices we make, Youth not bystanders, but bold and bold, In Earth's story, our part we stake. Though oft' our voices lost in the noise, In the shadows of the status quo's sway, Youth, with purpose, our resolve employs, To shape a world where hope holds sway. For the looming crisis casts its dark hue, Yet in our grasp, lies the power to heal, To rewrite the tale, to start anew, And ensure Earth's future we seal. Empower us, to sing future's tune, In unity, our strength finds its wings, Collectively crafting what lies 'neath the moon, A world where hope eternally springs.
