Are the Conversations dying with the Trees?

When I was a child with curious big eyes

And a mind too naive, ready to absorb

Anything that the nature had to provide

I looked at the sky, oh so blue & white!

I looked through the forests, lush green & free!

I looked into the oceans, blue, bubbling with life!

And then I would close my eyes

Fill my lungs with the fresh healing breeze of the times

…………………………………………………………….

But now I see, there are kids like how I used to be

Naive & trusting; stuck at home, watching the media cry

There is nothing for them outside

Nothing left within the nature to care for them & provide

They wear masks during the day

And stare at their phones at night

They know each other only through filters

And don’t let anyone see their real side

………………………………………………………………..

They have dimmed their brightness to suit the negativity of life

They have shut their mouths to make Time for their fingers to tweet about #FreedomOfSpeech

Stress, Competition, and Money are the new Love, compassion, and funny!
