Not created in the image of politicians 

I am joking in the air
Listening to rhythm within
I don’t know where rhyme flows
I am obeying virtues within.

I am rejoicing under the sky
Remembering good moments with friends 
But what is this I have done?
I have forgotten the efforts needed for work

Work is needed for climate care
Climate change is a reality unseen 
Unknown still by many
I need to nurture tree protection

Where on earth am I flowing
When oceans need new hope?
New flow that guarantees protection
The care unrealised by many souls

Why am I busy in thoughts 
When mind needs good reasoning 
For ways known unknown  
To protect the world 

Who will love politicians?
When on the ocean floor 
They stand but to hurt 
Let there be rhythm 

Let there be hearts.
Who can meet a politician’s wants?
Who can give him little and satisfy?
Who can make them feel the climate?

For them money is God
God smiles through comfort 
Infinity of riches is needed 
They design daily for others new hurt 

The don’t work for climate care
They don’t intend to repair 
If I will also indulge in self 
Who will care for world?

Let the common people like me
Arise and walk straight to protect 
Forests are weeping in pain 
Let the fire burn our wants 

Let us be better than politicians
More peace loving and calm 
Let us care for world more 
Let the difference between a politics and us be known.
