My eyes have been opened,
lessons learned from teaching shared,
I’m ready to move forward into a bright new world,
to leave behind, my plastic life.
I accept that this will be quite a challenge,
even harder than when I quit cigarettes,
because this world is not quite ready,
for us to leave this plastic life.
Yet, I am committed, have made a promise,
to be more practical and considerate,
discovering new ways to live in this environment,
so, we can be free from this plastic life.
Baby steps are required at first,
as change is not always a matter of choice,
still, I’m sure we can make a small difference,
then we’ll change this plastic life.
