Future

Most people say that
Our future looks bleak
Then go on to purchase mindlessly
So that their life looks on fleek

If we put our mind to it
We can build the future we need
We can build the world our children deserve
If only we pay some heed

Some countries mandate a member from each family
To serve in wars
If only they incentivized climate action careers
They could write prosperity in their stars

If traveling in your city
Was viewed as cool as a Europe trip
The environment would thank you
Instead of wiping you out like a blip

Thus, our actions determine
Where our fate stands
Because people rightly say that
The future is in our hands
