National Poetry Day Message Poem by Laura Crooks, Ardingly College Prep.

Apology to the World

.

Dear World,

.

I am sorry for ruining your territory,

for destroying your forests,

for killing your future,

for not being honest.

.

I am sorry for the rhinos,

for the horns I took,

for the meat I stole,

for making it cook.

.

I am sorry for the panda,

for the polar bear,

for the leopard,

for the hare.

.

I am sorry for the orangutan,

for the dolphin,

for the tiger,

for the orphans.

.

I am sorry for the refugees,

for the breaths

for the tiredness,

for the deaths.

.

Dear world, is it too late,

or can we start over?

.
