In a single moment, the world can fall on her side
But it seems to me that it’s up to us to decide
Whether or not she stays there, whether she’s worthy of change.
To either be created anew or simply rearranged.
She can adjust as can we, though how quickly, I’m not sure
But I do know that she can be great when she’s not pure
Though helping her rise from the gunky pit
Will always improve the outcome bit by bit.
Do not tell others that her chances are shot
For the younger ones and old can still be taught
To improve the very Earth at her core
To discover the beautiful future in store.
