Fading Star

My eyes are the truth, I can sadly see, selfishness is destroying humanity.
I gaze at the shadows cast by cement towers, there are no more purple, sweet scented budding flowers.
Has Medusa turned your planet to stone?
I fear your race will soon be alone.
The guardians with their green swords and shining armour, desperately fought; resulting in drama.
The warming toxins will soon turn icy cold, poor air to breathe, population will have no option, except to leave.
I was once a star, that shone so bright, but the gases are stopping me illuminate at night.
Darkness descends upon the maze of destruction, can somebody please give this insanity an instruction?
Ironically I feel relieved to know my fate, I have no time, I'm fading, it is too late.
