Nature and Future


Wonder is the nature tender is its beauty
Blunder we render by damaging its splendor
Limits are exceeded in extracting its resources
Future is at stake deprive not the generations

Wonder is the nature disaster is its fury
Ponder over the rupture caused by our folly
Nature exploited ends in future depleted
Survival is at stake deprive not the generations
