The Lonely Planet
Poem By Vishal Vinayan
Can more beautiful this place be?
The world we live in, so happy and free
So caressing the nature’s smile
Who not embrace this wonderful style?
Home for the little creature
For Men, a respected teacher
So mysterious our planet Earth
On which takes place every Man’s birth
No words describe the Earth’s beauty
To protect her is every Man’s duty
But terrible the harm to her we cause
Alas! Who cares for this great loss?
Man has become the beast
With mercy not in the least
Slashing trees and burning forests
Wrath of God at its highest
This is no prediction of the future
But mere truth, now clear as a picture!
A century from this day
Cold and bare, before us the Earth will lay!
A planet as unique as Earth,
In the universe, so far known, is dearth.
That’s why it is known as lonely,
Earth which is the one and only!
