You turned your back,
And the whole world
Disappeared from view,
Its purpose suddenly faded
In sepia-tinted memories.

You walked away,
And I saw myself alone
Rooted in unforgiving earth,
A diminished spirit,
Resistant to forward motion.

I turned inside
To look beyond illusion
Searching for my connection;
The glow of inner knowing
Reflected back to me in love.

I now stand tall
To view beyond the clearing
A universe possible and true;
The mirror of my heart
No longer shadowed by you.

Do Something

"We are what we do, not what we say." 
- David Suzuki 

The time has come for all of us, as global citizens, to step up our game. We need to be more conscious of the fact that everything we do or don't do affects us and the planet in some way 
- so please, make your actions count!

Below is a very powerful speech given by 13 year old Severn Suzuki to the United Nations on behalf of ECO, the Environmental Children's Organization.
