Message to the Moon

Each night I notice you, staring sadly at Mother Earth
Do you feel the same, that humans are living no worth?

We all have become workaholic, running on our life track
But we are unaware of the time, which is a hard nut to crack.

We don’t know what we are doing, has our brain bulb fused?
I think in studying and learning, our whole mind is used.

I’m not in opposition of education and learning
But if not applied practically, it’s like a plastic burning.

From trees to water, we didn’t leave any resource
We’re simply running without watching like a blind horse.

When we read that tigers are on the next number of leaving the world,
We usually skip that page and our lips are curled.

But it’s a fact that we were the only one to gin
When we use to show off our cosmetics made of animal skin.

We proudly travel in our cars ad release harmful gases behind
And through this we create the enemy of mankind.

Mobile-phones to tablets, all are now one of our basic needs
But what do we do with them, when they’re undesired like weeds.

Throwing E-waste is also a big issue to think about
Where to throw gadgets, there is still a doubt.

Dear Moon, I don’t think that the days are for when we are going to meet
And I must advise you to be in a habit of managing a number of feet.

I think we all will have no option other then to become a successful astronaut
As till that that time, we’ll lose our Mother Earth which as gift we got.

But for me there are some rays of hope that it isn’t too late
Let’s catch the needle of the clock and change the pages of our fate.
