On behalf of all humans I would like to say sorry in advance.
We didn’t mean to kill you.
We were too involved in killing each other for land, cutting down trees for money.
We were too busy wasting water with long showers, digging you up for gold, diamonds and oil.
We were too self involved to realise how we were hurting something so beautiful.
We didn’t mean to kill turtles with our plastic bags.
“It’s not our fault” they said, that the air became so polluted crops could no longer grow.
They knew this would happen. They were too scared to face the reality of how close it was to the end. It was too late to even do anything when they finally woke up to what was actually happening.
But I always knew.
I can’t say I didn’t warn them.
I did my best to take care of you, but I had no help. I couldn’t do much. I wish they at least tried.
Some of the wiser ones told them as well. Told them “when the last tree Is cut down, the last fish eaten, and the last stream poisoned, you will realise that you cannot eat money.”
They just kept living.
