before the return
May 24, 2008 § 11 Comments
to the origin everything will return,
to the roots everything will turn,
when all the energy to burn,
is burnt, we will be lost with none.
when the earth’s gifts,
are all used up and the benefits
none left,what will then, we humans
turn to next?
our origin ,very few are aware,
those who know will tell you beware,
it is time you start to care-
in the beginning they were few.
as time has moved on,
some ancient virtues have gone-
we weren’t asked to stick on,
so we left them to die.
in modernity we have forgotten something,
it time to revisit that quintessential thing,
it is time to understand the lost meaning,
the light will always shine the brightest.
in the past,when the world lost a virtue,
few were able to understand the cue
and replace it with the hour’s needed-in lieu.
now it is time to do the same.
the world is in need of many changes,
change is the surest of all constants,
it happens with time’s advacements,
the catalyst now is you-human.
nature needs no saving,
it is we hypocrites who keep fighting,
and in the name of virtue keep killing,
who need to be saved.
before the nature’s fury returns
before the earth ,this time burns,
before we are all caught in time’s churns
it is time to do our bit.
the need is too great,
let us not set our own bait,
we write our own fate,
we are the endangered human race.
