If we lose any, we lose all

Poem by Ashlynn Carr

If we lose any, we lose all – 
A forest with breeze through the trees, 
An ocean that's full of motion, 
A dry land of sand,  
The peaks of mountains that are like streaks in the night sky. 
How to love one, yet not the other? 
If we lose any, we lose all. 
What if it happens? Life on Earth ends.
You’ll be guilty, with all of your friends. 
Wouldn’t you feel better 
If you tried? 
If you helped? 
If you indeed succeeded?
Why can’t we try to save the lands and the seas?
A forest with creatures, 
An ocean of water, 
A dry land of sand,  
The peaks of mountains above the clouds.
How to love one, yet not the other? 
If we lose any, we lose all.
