Poem recited by Nabiha Naomi at the 4th Roots and Shoots Awards at UAE. This poem is dedicated to the Climate Force Challenge.

The Voice of the Earth

by Nabiha Naomi, Grade 8

Read out at the Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Awards 2018 

Do you not see the raging storms

Do you not feel the rising heat

My frozen lands are losing their form

Their inhabitants are losing their home

I was created for you

To sustain and shelter you

Now it’s your turn

To move towards sustainability

In abundance the sun shines

In abundance the rivers flow

In abundance the winds blow

Use these that I freely provide

You put me on hold

Not just for you but your children too

Together let us move forward

Generation to generation

To save,


And survive.
