Think It Over

Rating: 5.0

Ages back this planet was barren
One morning dispersed life like sunshine
Species have evolved, flourished, perished
And a peculiar animal has appeared.
Started living and thinking together
“Creation? ! ? ”
Wondered at first
About ‘itself’
And life around
“No it’s evolution? ! ? ”
many later has thundered
Has grown and shown
Certain values unknown
Devised numbers, created letters
Became “man of letters “
Evolved into a poet, a singer
An architect and a philosopher

But now
Computer substitutes ‘its’ thinking
Neutron bomb threatens ‘its ‘ living
Here explodes a bomb; there arises a fanatic
Here changes a ruler; there breaks out a war
Whatever might be the event
Senseless genocide of innocent people is imminent
Many feel ‘man ‘ has become a machine
No longer cherishes, relishes or nourishes
Values that are humane
And ‘behaves’ as ‘ it’ wishes

But I feel
Unless we are humane again
Our existence is at stake
Though we are able to
Fly like birds
Swim like fish
Set our feet on moon
Roam in the space
Or have babies avoiding sex


Evolution both in Nature and Science has given us much…similarly robbed too ‘But I feel/Unless we are humane again/Our existence is at stake’ Your these lines depict the mindsets of us where have gone? Lets us ponder and I thank you Sir for your cascade evolutative poetry 10++ Ms. Nivedita UK
