An 8th Day — A New Day To Breathe

A SPLIT POEM, ONE FOR ME AND ONE FOR YOU

I don’t know why I wrote these words… A reason, yes…

All along my way I need the air just like everybody else.

You need to listen — everybody need to listen — still.

And that might be the reason I push on the repeat…

The seven days
Now need delays
When gone
Some other ton
Of carbon lost
To what a cost

You say… It goes away — No need to worry

We need to pray
It goes away
Upon the sky
Without delay
A human right
To start the fight

Nope… No way it goes away — We need to hurry

We’re here to stay
Like trees start sway
Because you took
Just like the mook
You steal our air
And I must swear

Since we was born — It’s been a torn— The super-greedy came along

Why could it be
So hard to see
A new day kind of revolution
Just here to stop pollution
Just for one day
I said it just one day

You need accept the fact… We need to stop — To bring a new hope

Just for one day
And then another day
It’s so obvious
It turn outrageous
If you don’t learn
The world will start to burn

It is the air… No thing to fear — If not it chokes

When you make new delay
Is why we need to pray
It is a right and not a fight
You need to see the light
It is or not a wonder
No need to ponder

It is no thing… Or neither what we wear — It is the air

But it is there
And you can swear
That deep inside
There is no place to hide
You bring
The little thing

It have no wing… We always bring the thing — Our source to life

Though not a wing
The only thing
With no need to fly
Up in there high
But we need to eat
And also need to breathe

Pardon me… I need the air like you — Our common right to breathe

You know it is our engine
That needs the medicine
Filled deep into our lung
And we hear what’s sung
Mostly on repeat
It’s giving us the heat

Pardon me my breathing… But pardon you — Just give me a break

You might know me, but you don’t. I got wet in the rain, but now always soaked. I thought a lot. High thoughts and also loud and clear.
