"SaY" it with a poem: A message of Hope

The multi-talented Mehek Doshi from Dhirubhai Ambani International School has a few words to say about the nobility of Mother Nature.


Nature’s nobility


The sky mutated, azure and profane

as the lightning struck

down came the incessant rain

the behemoth almighty God

unravelled his power

and created nature

sending us on a new endeavour


The soil on earth formed

as the impurities cascaded down the sky

and nestled on the barren ground

that felt rough and dry

unceremoniously the soil shook

and a tiny green sapling emerged

a new fledgling

ready to be a bird

this tiny sapling how lanky it grew?

and towered the world as if it flew


On the tree came a tincture of colour

which developed into a splendorous flower

it turned into a spindly thicket

Alas! Alect! its never static

As the sky cleared in salmon and gold

a ball of molten gold ascends up high

and mesmerises birds and butterflies

it irradiated shedding light the rest of the day

and into the azure ocean it sunk away



The lashing waves made thundering sounds

welcoming the moon that ascended from the ground

the leaden sky was filled with silver

and stars that shine even in winter


This cycle is recurring everyday

and this is how life on earth was made

the nurturing mother earth

shared her love and pain

all for our paraphernalia and gain


And yet this world is selfish, manner less

instead of giving thanks

we destroy river banks

we waste resources

and steal homes of animals

so, they’re homeless

the earth is choked with pollution

broke with revolution

so, this is our story in my pure intuition


If you care about this generation

create a federation

make change and clear the dust

our chance is now

and everyone can help somehow

try your best and remember this isn’t a test

let’s make a better world and live to the fullest
