TEARS FLOW

Down my cheeks like the river creating an erosion as the skin cells erode like the soil does as the water levels are rising.

Tears flow as the river floods.

Glaciers are melting and slowly so am I.

Climate change is real on the earth I reside on and the biodiversity within me.

The climate crisis and my life’s mid 20s crisis have become parallel on this universe and the one beyond.

How to tackle climate change is the same way we tackle our journeys personal change.

We create the change. We cannot reverse, but we can act.
