Nature in the Hands of Men

a poem by Mariam Yaseen

Nature in the hands of men,
Cries in anguish and in pain.
Bombs and guns and chaos rules,
Calling men the material fools.

Never do we realise,
How swiftly the time flies;
Life is precious and a lovely gift,
Why do we indulge in creating rift.

Man versus man stand apart,
Hatred sown in the core of their heart;
Swearing to kill the peace on earth,
Orphaned children before their birth.

Let us be thankful for what god gave us,
The beautiful land, mountains and rivers.
Preserve the nature, take a pledge,
Defeat evil and cherish this priviledge.
