A picture of a beautiful blue sky and the sunset

I'm just sitting here thinking about all the world's problems

and how we cannot solve them 

unless we work together.

We have to work together.

Our forests are burning, our oceans slowly dying

we can never stop fighting or we'll lose,

unless we start caring.

We have to start caring.

The air is getting warmer, still our hearts are growing colder

we will never grow older

unless we start acting.

We have to start acting.

Our time is running out in this little snow globe

we are almost at the end of the road

unless we make a difference.

We have to make a difference.

But please don't lose all hope, our lives are like kaleidoscopes 

turn a fraction and we can start anew

but this can never work

unless it's what we all pursue.

Unless...
