The Eternal Door

We have the air, the living breeze,
the stubbornness not to bend our knees.
We have the water and little fishes
then dump in garbage from on our dishes.
We have the creatures who give us love,
but beat and batter them and eat the doves.
We say we love our fellow man
but cheat and steal and bite his hand.
We have the sun which warms our hearts
but just can't wait 'til it departs.
Are we too late to start again,
or have we killed our only friend?
We had everything long before,
but never considered the closing door.

Author's Notes:
Big question ...
Where will our future generations live,
if we, their parents, destroy their home planet?

I'd love to see a poem from you using those words or ones like 'em --David
There you go  David

Mankind and his smugness is in for a rude awakening! For all of our "Intelligence" we are a very stupid species because we don't respect all that the world gives us. Excellent Gene, you put your finger spot on!    Henry

Our dear chaplain, this is a masterpiece!  You focus on the problem-of-problems: you face it squarely with no hesitation.  Would that you were in charge of these problems!  If they still can be fixed -- you would fix them.  Y' got my vote, sir! --David

P.S.  Without a vow, I will work on a poem as you wish...  It will have to be very different from yours: I can't possibly -- and wouldn't attempt -- to compete.  Indeed, that would be the exact opposite of what we need to fix the problems: we need cooperation, what?

In fact:  I want EVERYONE here to post a poem on this theme!  Great idea, Gene!  There's no doubt that this is a thing we all agree on!!!

I wonder if...   D.

If Revelations holds true....then we've already got our answer, Gene.

So true that we destroy what we inherited for nothing and which we pass on with such decline
