Warming up the end

Smoked up skies and burnt up oceans,
Cry a river for us to understand, for us to feel,
The very pain they try to stand,
The very life they try to save,
But to no avail, as no one seems to care
And no one seems to try.

One day they might fail, they might die saving us,
There would be no looking back then;
No tears would bring them back
And the very lives they tried to save.

Wake up at least now,
try seeing the world away from slumber,
try seeing into the light of our future hopes;
Because there is no other way than to act,
And there is no other time but now.
