Time for mammoth leaps

The time has flown past

For baby steps

If at all, we yearn to last

In mammoth leaps we must trot

Lest from the planet we shall be outcast

Our tresspassing, our deeds

Have left, even the  creator aghast

With millions perishing

Unambiguous is the forecast

In the world that we have created

It ain’t a riddle, not long will we outlast

In return  for her benevolence

Treachery was what she got oh what a contrast

If we still can’t fathom

the extinction clouds overcast

We all will fade away

Forever, in oblivion deep and vast

A science enthusiast, pursuing my passion for imparting knowledge to young minds as a teacher, I thrive in the inquisitive company of the younger generation. I am an over-thinker when the thoughts tend to swarm every pore of my consciousness, I find solace in the verses of poetry, There are times when I feel overwhelmed with the ways of the world, poetry is my respite in those times. For me, poetry is both liberating and empowering. I am an ardent nature lover and the only legacy that I would like to leave for my children is a healthier and cleaner earth. Most of the verses that flow in my mind are a mingling of words and an inherent longing for a better place to live
