Poem by payal mathur

Man thought he was civilizing,
When he was getting away from nature,
But nature has its way to remind,
How it can affect our future.

When man and nature lived together
There was nothing much to bother,
There occurred a complete harmony,
With all species existing as a family.

But soon man started moving away,
In his gusto of making a new way.
He made villages, towns and cities,
His progress paved the way to tragedies.

It started with hunting and cutting trees,
His next attack was fishes in seas,
Slowly it affected the delicate balance,
This was the starting of his nuisance.

His inventions affected the ozone layer,
The wild life also had its share,
Rains got scanty and pollution was everywhere,
The damage was getting beyond repair.

Species became extinct, forests bared,
Rivers were choked, but no one cared.
As minerals got depleted and there was petroleum lack,
Nature decided its time to fight back.

Carbon-di oxide increased and temperature rose,
Nature retaliated with floods and chaos.
Man threw products of natural hazards,
Nature turned lush forests to deserts.

Soon the fury of nature was seen in waves,
Tornados and Tsunamis gave no escape,
Volcanoes and storms, earthquakes and famines,
Nature used all to punish the scene.

Get up and see what you’ve done,
The home you damaged was your own one,
You also harmed the siblings living with you
But nature is a tough parent and you’ll get the due.

Those who don’t follow the rule of living together,
Have to forego the comfort and love of their Mother,
Nature created Dinosaurs, but now there are none,
For they had disobeyed- and now it seems your turn.

    Dear Payal,
    Yet another example of sensitive observation with power of words.
    Sadly, people don't take these thoughts to transform themselves.
    Whenever i read or i write such expressions..this wish lingers on.

    I would like you to read one such poem I penned.
    And comment freely. Cheers!(Report)Reply
