Reflections of the World
– Shabana Chowdhury Ahmed
The world, as we know, is no longer with us! The past cannot be changed but whatever action we take today will either destroy or preserve us! It’s a wake-up call for humanity! Destiny is in our hands! Hoping for a save better world for our children and grandchildren.
Remember that the sins of the fathers visit upon their children!
- How Fare Thee Old World?
Not Very Well.
What Ails Thee Old World?
Humans Destroying the Very Essence of Life!
How Can We Cure?
Stop Greed. Arrogance. Inequality and Hate
To Become Humans Again!
- I Used to Think That
I Was an Alien!
Not Human Being.
Never Saw Things
As Others in Their Little Minds !
It Took Me a Long While
To Realise That People Have Two Choices.
Either Be Their Own Beautiful Snowflake
Or Melt into a Puddle of Conformity
For Comfort’s Sake!
I Rather Be Extra-Terrestrial
Because Most Humans are Inhumane!
- The Heavens Roared with Thunder
As Lightning Filled the Skies!
Was It Nature’s Anger?
Was It Nature’s Way of Telling Us
To Stop the Interference and Abuses
She Receives from Humans!
- We Marvel at Her Beauty
Each Time We Look at Her!
Then Dig Up All Her Treasures
From Their Nature Burial Grounds!
All That Keeps Us Living.
We Take It All Yet Still Want More
Never Think of Giving Back!
We Build across The Countryside
But Mother Nature Cannot Progress
For Humans Have Become Inhumane!
