We are digging our way into extinction.
Ignoring Nature’s calls,
We are turning into selfish jailers.
As Earth is getting warmer,
Wonders are melting away.
As I was treading this icy “grottus”
– a man made cave attracting people
From all over the world,
Turning tragedy into entertainment –
I realized how far gone we are.
It is not mere ice that we are evaporating to oblivion
With our harmful ways.
It is our humanity itself that we are trampling upon
Our land is deteriorating.
No one will call out until there is
No more healthy ground to walk on.
No one will act until there is
No more place to call home.
By the time we wake up, open our eyes and see
Our souls will be long doomed and our bodies
Poisoned to a point of no return.
Our light is fading at the end of the tunnel.
Soon we will have robbed our planet blind.
