I find reasons to frown
After long many years I am back in my town,
I can’t believe my eyes, I find reasons to frown.
Huge buildings are there where we had grounds to play,
Where under the shades of the trees we could spend a hot day.
These buildings have blocked sunshine, suffocated I feel,
With the population so dense now, I can’t stand here still.
In an effort to widen the roads, trees they fell,
The town was heaven to me and now it’s a hell.
The river water is polluted now and so is the air,
People are always on the move with no one to take care !
Buses are overcrowded, accidents a regular sight,
Vehicles ply , blow horns, from morning till late night.
How lovely it was years ago when I had left !
Life was so smooth with no burglary or theft.
People lived happily , without fear, knew one another by name
Now one doesn’t know the next door neighbour, which I feel, is a shame !
Improvements and modernization, however important they could be,
Must not be at the cost of the Nature, that’s the way I see.
With a broken heart and tearful eyes I leave the town for good,
I won’t come back here to stay for sure , I don’t think I should.
I would rather stay in a village and live their in peace,
Honour my dear Mother Nature and feel Her warm kiss.
Those who are disrespecting Her, to them I urge.
Please change your attitude for the mankind at large.

I look at myself in the mirror, wonder why I am growing old so fast! All my hair has turned grey now, For how long my life will last! Where have those young days gone ? They seem to have gone past so soon!...
I was alone. I was scared to hear a scratching sound on the door.
The poem is written to arouse some laughter - Nothing else! I shall be glad if you find it funny.
