To the rest of the world

To the rest of the world, please could you prepare a place for my country to stay. Could you find a home where my future is safe?

Could you rejuvenate the planet, not for me, but for us. Could you bring back the nature you have turned to dust.

Could you bring back the birds that used to sing? Could you restore fresh water to drink?

To the rest of the world, could you finally wake up. Could you realise, alas, our time is up.

Together, can we please clean this mess? We need each other, my neighbour, my friend.
