The Blame Of Degraded Earth

By Rahul Sapra

 

It's not the same old Earth

I heard about,

 it's the Earth a bit different today

fighting from man's scrutiny,making its way.

The days are hotter

hotter than they have ever been,
many have failed to find a solution

is man also responsible for this or only the sun?

We blame god ,we blame the sun

for earthquakes,droughts and the massive destruction.

but didn't we cut the trees? didn't we hinder the environment?

earth's degrading because of the man's extensive involvement.

Who are we to blame,

if not bad did we do something good for our Earth?

Everyone knows what they did,

instead of lying to ourselves lets become a candid.
