NATURE VERSUS MANKIND

                        Metropolitan city, a fast-paced city   
            Tantalizing desires, dazzling fame stealthily bound to disintegrate 
Swelling population, clustered houses, disparity among people, gazing with pity 
High ambition, stiff competition, insensitive attitude sneakily tend to deflate  

                        Flashback memories come to foresight together  
Once, dense woods stand tall, creatures under one roof altogether  
A mark of solidarity and in cohesion, help each other

      Drooping trees bemoan, ‘How callous mankind axe us for pleasure’
            ‘How anyone tear us apart, lament in displeasure 
                        Selfish and greedy, in equal measure. 

Confronting setbacks, man with nature hasten to discuss nitty- gritty 
            Realized, hankering after mundane objects, inner self tend to degenerate 
      Thereafter, exchange pleasantry with one-another
                        Harmony and unity exist, a priceless, glorious treasure.
