Time to wake up

Its all around us and a common thing in our world,
To see destruction of nature, heritage and human lives.
The survivors of destruction are homeless, hungry and thirsty!
Is this the way we want to leave behind our history?

All succeeding generations learn from the past,
For building their worlds on what we leave behind.
What do we have for them apart from mass destruction?
Is there any good to over power our evil for their selection?

Let us think, let us act and let us rebuild
A place which will make us feel our life had a purpose,
We did live for a cause and made better future,
And we created history our children would like to nurture!

Time to wake up and change the world before the end of our time!
Time to wake up and swear off to eradicate the evil slime!

It reminds me of a lovely line I once learnt long time back. 'John Keats' writes in his 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' - "Beauty is truth, truth beauty - that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know." (Meaning - "Beauty is nothing but the truth around you. Like wise, no matter what it is, if it is the truth, it has to be beautiful.")

p.s: It's amazing to understand the same lines in an entirely different perspective which you had before! :-)
