The World As I See It

Written By Atishaya Gupta (Grade 6)

”The world is an intricately interwoven web of infinite relations”
-Daisaku Ikeda

The world is a work of art,
Its gems do it impart,
Helping humanity for a billion years,
The world makes sure we are never apart!

Giving everything we humans need,
Even though we are exploiting this heaven in greed,
The world teaches how to survive,
Giving us the wisdom of how to stay alive,

Looking from the eyes of a grain of sand,
Or from the enormous elephant standing grand,
The beautiful world has a look of peace,
Even though humans are making it cease,

Helping humanity to prosper,
The world gives like a river,
The word as I see it is so serene,
Water flowing and trees looking pale green,

The world is full of hope and joy,
I am enjoying it as a boy,
There are struggles to revive the world,
As humans look to let the space flag unfurl,

The world from my eyes as I see,
From the almost never-ending trees,
Or from the fragrant lingering breeze,
Is blithesome and awesome,

As the lovely flower buds bloom,
I hope and pray to end this gloom,
As we continue to protect this land,
All the challenges are in our hand,

But we will solve them of course,
Until I shout myself hoarse,
I will do my best to bring a change,
Protecting everyone within my range,

The world can once again be our haven,
Saving everything, even a raven,
Man ruins, kills and shoots,
Please help me to go back to our roots.

I opened my eyes to the world on 7th April 2008. Since the very beginning, I loved exploring. It was books that fed my curiosity as I delved into the world of spies, astronauts, and wizards. But the one place that grabbed my attention the most was our galaxy. I hope you enjoy reading my articles and poems! Have a look at my blog here.

Sometimes, you have to lose all things you like
The things you loved now left behind
Sometimes, time doesn't favour you...

They are hidden deep within us,
In the shadows lurks a dark curse,
The deadly spirits will make it rise...

As living beings, we are all cognisant of the fact that no one is immortal on this planet, yet we tend to turn a blind eye...
