Life’s wonders, does it cease?
The birds are chirping from morning to night
In a city filled with fumes the skies are back to a beautiful blue
I hear the sparrows and I hear the crows for the first time
I see peacocks strolling in the backyard where there were only human noises and voices
Where were you all this time?
Did we push you away so brutally?
Did we kill your spirit ?
Did we clip your wings and batter your soul?
And yet here you are,
Showing us what it means to fly
Soaring high and above with no fear
Watching over us and wondering,
Have the humans realised it finally?
Have they realised their follies?
Have they realised that the piece of land they fight for never belonged to them?
The wars they bring upon each other only causes sorrow and tears?
That by destroying trees, they are destroying themselves?
And right then, I see an eagle soaring above me
With it’s vision encompassing lands and humans
And I pray, I pray, I pray
Oh Mother, do what needs to be done
For everything is yours, this body, this spirit, this soul,
Take back what was stolen from you,
Reclaim what was ravaged by us
You are teaching us,
Soft and hard
Tears and smiles,
The whole cycle all over again
For we know for sure we won’t get a second chance ever again.
