The Day After

Apr 24, 2016

Today is earth day.
Stop. Don’t look at your watch or check the calendar.
Today is earth day.
You live on this earth and today is a day.
So why is just one day a special day?
three hundred and sixty four days I am allowed to walk past trash with a clean conscience.
and one day I can tidy up a little and cleanse my guilt.
I refuse that reality because, today is earth day.
Oh yesterday was also and tomorrow will be again.
It is not my job to fix what someone else broke.
It is my job to not let it stay broke If I want it to work.
This is my earth
This is my day.
For as long as I live it will be that way.
