Earth and the Man...
By Prithvi S J Monteiro
Prithvi S J Monteiro is a class IX student of Lourdes Central School, Bejai. He is the son of Ivan C Monteiro, an insurance advisor and Fatima D'Silva, principal, NITTE Usha College of Nursing, Deralakatte.

'Earth and the Man' is a poem written by Prithvi, starting with the creation and the formation of the earth and gradually going on to the problems faced by mother earth with the advancement of man and technology. Here, 'I' refers to the Planet Earth and 'You' refers to Human Being.

Earth and the Man...

I was born with crashing and thrashing,
Rocks here, rocks there and everywhere
Wild volcanoes erupting and the lava splashing
This is how I was formed by God with great care
It was time for creatures to come
Peacocks to dance, lions to roar,
Snakes to hiss and birds to hum
But wait is there something more?
Time has come for humanís birth
For man to rule and wander
Hey I introduce that I am earth
Oh! The creation, what a splendor
Time passes as the brooke flows
Advanced men have started their chores
By building factories like foes
But wait is there something more?
It was ok with a little black ash
It was ok with a little kill
Ok until there would be no human clash
More the ash, more the bill
Time has again moved on
Itís getting worse in the mine ore
It hurts me when you dig on and on
But wait is there something more?
Past is past, I have forgotten it
Itís time to have a change
Let the twenty first century candle lit
Before disaster and time behaves strange
Plant the plants and plant more trees
Let my dream come true
Let us win the race and pass the crease
For a lovely bond between Me and You.

Beautifully written Prithvi. The poem cautions us to wake up from the deep slumber and put an end to all the plunderings the mankind has made in exploiting mother earth to satiate his greed. A wake up call for all of us to take note of the warnings and heed to your advice to save the earth. Here I remember the words of the greatest Physicist Albert Einstein "In the children lies the hope of the world. Let us hope that your generation will put mine to shame".
Keep writing......!
