saving earth,for what?

July 31, 2008 § 9 Comments

a hundred problems to be solved,
a hundred issues to be resolved.
We need to save ourselves,
we need to understand where survival dwells.

Understanding is created by thinking,
thinking walks faster with understanding.
And through understanding comes action
and through action,redemption.

Shove your hand up and see,
how we have hurt all that was free.
Feel the dust on your bed,
see the avid life,now dead.

We breath an air, polluted,
we walk on grounds cemented.
One day we will can the air,the killer,
and the ground the pyre.

One day the ice all would have melt away,
that one day future will sit around tables and say,
“what a waste our ancestors were,care
they couldn’t ,not even for us,their heir.”

One day we all will see the clouds too hungry,
and with floods we all will be left in poverty.
Then, then we will know,
that all that wasn’t just meant for a T.V. show.

Time has always gone by,
one day,yes we all will die,
but with us let not everything die,
let us leave everything else alive.

Let us remember we don’t own earth,
let us remember we are progeny of earth.
Let us remember that it our decision to make,
we cannot let it go,for our future’s sake.

We need to be sagacious,
we need to stop being precarious.
Think of everything you use,
think how in dearth,you children will muse.

It is our earth ,not yours or mine.
We need to keep it just about fine,
so that humanity can live on,
even after we all are long gone.

    Wonderful poem! Such a truth. It is our responsibility..Though the whole poem is good, I just want to highlight the below lines:

    One day the ice all would have melt away,
    that one day future will sit around tables and say,
    β€œwhat a waste our ancestors were,care
    they couldn’t ,not even for us,their heir.”

    Beautiful thought πŸ™‚

  • Great poem!

    Stupid humans that we are, we don’t realise that all the world is a stage and all men and women are actors. We have no right to destroy the stage or push other actors (other Earthlings) off the stage!
