We Inherit the World From Our Ancestors

I am waiting for the world to change for the better.
I am waiting for the governments of the world to battle global climate change,
to reduce carbon emissions and oil consumption,
to turn to the wind and the sun and the sea.
I am waiting for the people of the world—the conservative people—I am waiting for them to
stop being disillusioned,
to accept that we are the problem,
to accept that we must change ourselves to save the world,
to acknowledge that there is not another planet we can go to

to realize that once they die, there are others who have to live with their mess.
