Poem #2 – Pollution

Tell me is it right
That we sleep well at night
Replenishing ourselves
For tomorrows greedy fight

There lie abundant rivers with pollution
There fly multiple clouds with contamination
And when good food goes to waste
The valleys of the earth bury their paste

Our world is an institution
Of environmental pollution
We choose not to care
For our future generations

And I for one am guilty
For buying the hundreds of electronic gadgets
That attracts the industries to produce like maggots
Environmental pollution is at the heart of our planet

The forests are dying
Wild life is crying
Millions of fish are dying
Mother earth is sighing

Tell me is it right
That we sleep well at night
Replenishing ourselves
For tomorrows greedy fight
Overcrowded trains
Overloaded brains
Where is the light? What is our plight?
While rivers break their banks
And greedy industries play their polluted pranks

Sylvia Chidi is a great author that made sense in her poem about pollution and what it’s doing to the future generations. We can all reflect to this. We can think about the wrongs we do that is causing our surroundings to not be a great place to be. Every part of the world; the forests, seas, and wildlife, all of it is being polluted. How can we sleep at night knowing that we might not be able to live tomorrow?
