The Peninsula Pulse has dedicated a page in each issue from April 24 to May 22 for the students of each Door County high school. This week we feature the work of Southern Door student writers.
A Different Perspective
by Elizabeth Bretl, Senior
What’s a different perspective you need
to look at? Maybe it’s one that is shouting at you to help her
before it’s too late.
Do you know your home is crumbling
beneath your feet?
She is throwing signs
left and right, yelling for help.
What is it going to take to open your
eyes and see the pain the earth is
You must live under a rock,
if you haven’t noticed the destruction
Everyday Earth screams at you and everyday
You’re taking her for granted.
And soon you will not have a home.
