Selfish - Poem by Mugdha Khedkar

'We are selfish',
When we hear this,
A flame of anger emerges
Though it isn't amiss.

We, being aware of the reality,
Keep acting as if we don't know,
What we are doing to our earth
How we are being nature's foe.

Our needs are growing,
Something should be done,
But felling trees recklessly
Is this the only solution?

'Stop Deforestation', we say bravely,
When it happens we keep mum,
Even if we try to spread awareness,
Almost half the battle is won.

Very few people have won till now,
Long ago, each one was a winner,
Today all are engrossed in their own world,
And have forgotten the nature.
- Mugdha Khedkar
