Life Today - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

We are polluted
Thoughts are diluted
Voice is muted
Environment not suited

Such is life today
We have been pushed away
Nature is far off and distant dream
We are acting as an individual and not team

We are divided in cast, creed and religion
Hatred is added and forgotten the region
We are limited to tiny land
Where only foes rule and not the friends

Atrocity, murders and rape is order of the day
Such has become routine and find’s its way
Life is uncertain and goal very much unclear
Death has become cheap life always feared

Life is changing very fast
Nothing has been built on trust
At every step you encounter deception
Possibly it is order of day with new perception

How many deadly diseases added their names?
No immunity or medicine is found or claimed
Counter to counter resistance is diminished
Life stands to be lost and get finished

Any thing can happen on the way
You want peace in life to stay
It can never be had or dreamed
No hope of ray is possible or beamed

Everything has become instant
But has increased the distance
The natural flavor is lost
But has doubled its cost

What do we want to enjoy?
Fast life with fear in the absence of joy
I wish to return to natural habitat
Hopefully will be able to change the habits

Let city change its mood?
Let them change entire pattern of food
But one thing will never be changed
The pollution and others may not be managed
