Why can’t I?
Why can’t I see the sky?
The sun, the moon, the stars
When I look up, everything’s gone
Everything that made earth shine
Why can’t I see the plants, the animals?
Look outside, only concrete and tarmac
No wildlife could survive here
They would die too easily
Why can’t I see colours?
I look around, All grey and black
Dull, ugly, depressing
Where did the rainbows go?
This is our world
What it has become
Boring, colourless, nothingness,
But maybe it will get better,
Maybe there’ll be more colours in our world
Maybe there’ll be no more deaths
And maybe we’ll live happily together
No more fears and no more cries.
