A Song for the Environment Yes I know I need you
Yes I know you are the best
I know you need me too
For your protection

Yes you need my help
But do I give it to you?
Have I given it to you?
I may be trying
But have I tried enough

Planting trees
Is one of your favorite
But have I done that for you
Have I done enough?
I just hope so

Cleaning you up is one of your best
But have I made it up for you?
I then have to
At this moment
To call upon all
To join me
In this song
To the environment

Planting of trees
Is one of the duties
We have for the environment
With trees planted
We shall make the environment
A happy one at that
We shall have made nature
The best of our friend
And the reward?
Well the reward is
Of great importance
To us and the
Next generations to come
So come on
How many trees
Have you planted so far?
How many trees are you proud of?
Hope they are as many as I can not count
This a song for the environment

Writer Profile
Erick Ochieng Otieno

I was a student from Egerton University. I pursued a course leading to a BSc in Applied Aquatic Sciences. I believe that through writing, one can relieve a lot from the heart. Inspiration came from hearing and reading. Whoever said that you have to be an old one to communicate issues of policies, did not consider that even a newborn communicates through its own way, "crying". I would like to communicate to the world all my thoughts; However minor they are, I believe they will go a great length to straighten or strengthen a policy or two somewhere and I shall have contributed to the well being of the world. How noble that is, it is for my worthy readers to let me know. So what do you think? Tell me anytime. Bye and have a nice reading.
