Is it all too late

Photo taken by Cassa Bassa at Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia


Our backyard is burning
Our conscience is trapped in a furnace
There is no Daniel to intercede for us
There aren’t angels to our rescue
We are sitting with our transgression
against our mother earth

We have been wallowing in the luxury of
blue sky, calm rivers, flourishing forest
sweeping our sin under the poisoned land
committing more in the name of economic growth

Our backyard is on fire
Is it all too late
for us to escape from our wrongdoing
pleading tears dry out
before God can hear our cry
to send rain
