hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Something wrong with human mind

We are cutting branch of tree
That is not independent and free
It is line of our survival
Yet we consider it as natural

We need natural resources for development
There is heavy extraction movement
Oil is taken out and gas is not spared too
There is vacuum in earth belt and felt too

Some where earth gives in causing quakes
Rivers too flood and remain in spate
Glaciers are melting with warm up in air
Everything seems unnatural and unfair

Are we digging our own grave?
Have we become so much brave?
Or fool creating heaven on earth?
Pray almighty for early death

Pollution is at peak level
Diseases are raising head and excel
No proper medicines are searched and found
Nature plays havoc all round

Weapon of mass destruction have piled up
They are capable of many more time to seal the fate
We talk of establishment on another planet
Poor still suffer here and await the fate

Something wrong with human mind
Ambition is appreciated but where is end?
Can any one cite purposeful fall out?
Can we talk of now peace and search about?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
