“Seeing the widespread ignorance of how our world is changing and how many communities have been harmed, I felt confused, afraid, and helpless, uncertain if there was anything I could do. At first, it was easy to feel pessimism and despair, but I found hope and optimism in the power of words to cause change and communicate messages to others. [In my poem,] I wanted to emphasize not only our personal responsibilities to the health of our planet, but also the power held by each individual and the potential change we can cause when we act together.”
