Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

Child of the Earth

When you were first born, you were born for a reason
You were born to tell a story to your children and grandchildren

Fairy tales that the good people always win
But now, now the good people are losing
Our planet is fading away
Global warming is a thing we do not see, but is there
If we do not act, we will disappear
Everything gone... our children and grandchildren
We do not have much time.
