I can’t stop Climate Breakdown

I can’t stop climate breakdown,

But I can play my part,

A small part,

So small,

That it is insignificant,

But I will try.


I can’t stop climate breakdown,

But I can pray,

And act,

So small,

That it seems insignificant,

But I will try.


I can’t stop climate breakdown,

But I can love,

And be loved.

So beautiful,

That my life has dignity,

But I will try.


I can’t stop climate breakdown,

But I can rage against the machine,

And say,

Not in my name,

So small,

But I will try.


I can’t stop climate breakdown,

But I can hope,

And dream,

And participate

In a conspiracy of compassion,

A holy rebellion,

Until that day when all tears are wiped away.
