Extinction

qwryul

Some animals that I know of

Are today nowhere to be found

Like the dinosaur and the dodo

Neither any longer tread this ground.

There are many more such creatures

Like the Woolly Mammoth or Steller Sea Crow

Or the majestic Sabre-toothed tiger

Or  even the Penguin Great Ark now.

Now to an eager mind like your

The question is probable to arise

Where have all these animals gone?

What made them all bid goodbye?

I’m sorry to tell you this my friend

But mankind is the real cause

We have chopped off trees and poached them

We sold their bones, teeth, and claws.

And slowly all these species had

No way to any longer survive

And the same is endangering more

So we must change and realise!

How Mankind Changed Our Earth

kteerhhgrewrgm,

Dear mankind, long before your birth

Such was the beauty of our Mother Earth

When dense leaves bore succulent fruit

When fauna was melodious, bright, astute.

When rippling water streamed and poured.

The zestful world left unexplored

The air mixed with purity and hope

Ecstasy and colour at every scope.

But then along you came, oh mankind

The grace that we once could find

Vanished, because of your sly ploy

The exquisiteness you did destroy

Due to deforestation, poaching and smoke

The delicate symmetry you had broke

All life having reached fatality, death

For this grace to be gutted you set/

The dim future that we foretold

Is now our present, so we must be bold

And heal our mother, rather than kill

We’ll find the way if we find the will.

But

B

Mother Nature

duh

When I wake up in the morning bright

I push out all wordly thoughts from my mind

I first close my eyelids shut once more

To hear the birds outside chime.

I illuminate myself with warm sunlight

I breathe the fresh and springy air

Hear the chirrup from the lush greenery

Dew on every glass blade, clouds fluffed and fair.

I remember all my memories with nature

Be it the rippling of waves beneath my feet

Or the gravelly, shelled soil of the beach

Or the scent of pine down the street.

I then think of how pollution destroyed

These pleasures, and weakened Mother Earth

She filled our lives with grace and beauty

And to our dullness, added mirth.

You are You

You are You

In the entire extensive world
I guarantee you’ll never find
An object, or a soul at that
With your exact same mind.
You can look in all directions
You’ve ever learnt in school
But you’ll never find a duplicate
Of you, warm or cool.
“Why?” you ask. “How?” you’ll say
And I’d happily reply to you
“Cause you’re unique, my dear friend
I thought you already knew!”
You may look like your Papa.
You might be just as strong.
But you may be just shyer
I bet them I’m not wrong.
A hundred differences there are
Not just with Papa but with Mum.
You might be just as tall
But there are differences some.
Your personalities may seem similar
With your sweet sis and big bro
But trust me on this- honey,
There are more changes than you know.
Your friends and yes your enemies!
You too are quite alike!
But some tiny variations like
Between a scooter and a bike.
Listen: I’m telling you:
You really are simply unique
You’ll never find someone just like you
No matter how hard you seek.
The thousand billions of creatures
That live upon this earth
You’re completely different from them
You are in your own berth.
