Poem by Afaf Rabbani Blackfriars Primary, Glasgow

Our World: Our Future

Deforestation, forests now clear

Small, helpless animals now living in fear

Beds of oceans, lakes and rivers

Now so dark and polluted it would give you shivers.



Plastic, plastic, plastic everywhere

Careless people littering here and there

Time passes by the trees now cry

The plants and tree stumps are left to lay and die.



Our future is at risk

It’s up to us to fix it

We must try our best

It is up to us to do the rest.



It’s up to us to make the world a better place

So our future generations have enough space.

We must help the world whenever we can

So everyone will live happily, every child, woman and man.
