A lesson..

by Meena Krish   Mar 31, 2020

There is a lesson we are learning-
never to take anything for granted
one moment we had it all
and in a whirlwind everything
put on halt,

Disrespecting a power higher
then us we ignored nature
as we fall prey to her silent
destructive character;

Our tears, aches and anger will
not stop mother nature's fury
when all we did was kill her children
disfiguring her beauty,

We raised concrete comfort
blew greed and arrogance
upon her body and spirit
now we pay with fear-caged
within an uncertainty

    We tend to live as though we have no fear and no care and in a moment we see how fragile and weak we truly are. And nature handed us something we can’t handle and it brought the whole world to it’s knees. Beautiful poem Meena

    Meena, very well written, contains today's realities, that shock people to soberness after being drunk with the bitter wine of this fallen world!
