While walking to school on dripping shoes
Inhaling the pollution through my nose
I ask myself this question,
Have we forgotten the purpose of these inventions?
Convenience for sure it once was
But now, with this sticky uniform does it still does?
Convenience that some haven’t yet to experience,
Yet suffer most of its consequences.
Having to cross a bridge was once dry
Now filled with water and where my shoes have to lie
Wearing this sticky uniform, the entire class
Deprived of a simple luxury other student has
The convenience these machines provided
Seems to equal the inconveniences it created
My dripping shoes and sticky uniform are the evidence,
That the effects of these machine are not a hypothetical case.
I’m still learning, but I’m awake
Changing habits for our sake
Praying these machines would reverse its effects
That a better future might still awaits.
