Why submit to nature?


Why do we submit to nature’s sway?
Consider it casual and attention not pay,
The Sum always rise with powerful ray,
Heat waves may burn skin mid-day,

Path barren, rest certain so not to lay,
Not a single soul or children dare play,
So is the cycle and we always pray,
Areas we prefer which are always gray,

Darkness disappear with mild glow,
Dews depart with fresh air flow,
Plants raise head with resolve to grow,
Flowers open up with hot wave blow,

Eyes blind with little energy spark,
Boats turtle, aground with hit from shark,
Fear grip the mind with dog’s bark,
But rest whole body under tree in park,

Heat waves compel living beings to run,
Floods play havoc but children have fun,
Seek we refuge to escape nature’s fury,
No respite but justice in absence of jury,

Cool, breeze and fresh air plenty in hill,
Natures always offer life but not always kill,
As disease not go off without proper pill,
So nature may offer alternate for ill,

Immense wealth and beauty lie with nature,
Secure is the life if we believe in the future,
Vow not to destroy future and destiny,
Prepared for the worst to witness after mutiny

    Why I prefer double standard?
    Sometimes inner conscience revolt and bombard,
    Believe in what is told heard,
    Always protective and feared, (Report) Reply
