I find reasons to frown

Updated on April 18, 2015

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.

      Hello MM, Yes, it's a very sad feeling when you revisit somewhere and find that things have changed beyond your recognition. Felling of trees, I find is totally unkind and unjustified. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Hope you are all well.

      Best Wishes, Kamalesh

      Hello Kamalesh, isn't strange to revisit somewhere and it's changed beyond recognition and it's so sad to see trees disapearing.

      Thank you for sharing and voting up, best wishes my friend, MM

      Nice donely. I agree with your modernization changes nature and things--people for sure, are less friendly and the environment is not as clean. You express that well. Thans for sharing and rating it up.

      The byproducts of modernization is environmental destruction. I hope that there will come a time that trees still grow even in the most highly-urbanized city.
