Dying for a New World (poem)

George Orwell

At the moment there are some thoughts that can be expressed in a poem that might be censored in any other form. For paradigm shift to happen, we shall need to be able to speak freely about difficult subjects.

Dying For a New World

The world is just too full of us
That much at least is obvious
Maybe it would be for the best
If some of us died to save the rest?

I love my life, don’t get me wrong
I don’t think I’ve been here too long
But if it would really help then I
Might choose a little help to die

But not yet! Not until I see
A sea change in humanity
A true desire to save the Earth
To give my sacrifice some worth
