The Legacy: In support of the young who are urging corporations and governments to aggressively fight Climate Change

The Legacy

Children should be seen,
heard listened  to
and understood.

If ignored or suppressed,
they should inscribe their will
across the skies of their time,
forcing hypocrisy and inhumanity
to confront the light of day.
And only they
shall determine their means.

If they do not,
when the architects of tomorrow
have died,
they, the powerless young,
will inherit the rubble
of misery and despair;

A world they have not made,
do not understand,
unconsciously yearn to leave.
