We are SORRY…. We FAILED!

By:- Aishwarya Raghunath

Dear future,
We are Mourning;
Mourning in advance for you
Because we have failed…

Failed to provide
You a secured environment…
Failed by pushing you
Into the recess of ignorance…
You will be too naive
To know what caused the degradation
May blame your past life;
And wait for redemption…
But the lies will be hidden
We the culprits;
Won’t be present
There won’t be anything left
For you to save yourself…

We are sorry we failed
To provide you a breathable air
It will cost you life
If only to rules did we abide
I hope you will have the strength
To fight against the pollution…

We are sorry we failed you
To leave you in thirst of water
May be you can drink your
Tears and get it quenched!

We are sorry we failed you
The sight isn’t pleasing
You may be perplexed knowing
Once there were bountiful of greens…
And other species too;

We are Sorry we failed
For turning you into educated illiterates;
We were too, we accept..
That alone caused humanity to degrade…

We are sorry we failed
Have turned you into cannibals
May be you will be accustomed to eat the wastes
That we have left in abundance…

We are sorry we failed
We took away your free thinking
You may question looking up in the sky
But am sorry
there exists no one there
To answer your queries!

We failed you
By gifting you premature death
Death that will not be due to old age
But due to pollution and depression…

We are sorry we failed you
In the quest of building values
We took away your individuality…
We are sorry we failed you
For taking away security…

We are sorry we failed you
For filling you with hatred
Hatred in greed and envy for ego
Hatred triggered by name
And making it your religion

We are sorry we failed you
Made you think luxury is life
You may own many cars and ride bikes
But for peace you will strive…

We are sorry we failed you
We are the reason for your depression
We are the sorry we failed you
We took away free will and confidence!

We are sorry we failed you
Taught you how to differentiate
Yet failed to make you think
What is right and wrong
How to debate…

We are sorry we failed you
Miserably I say
And here’s the parting message
While we lay killed in wars and murdered by hatred;

Welcome to this world!
Party hard
We have left you everything
Foggy air
Filthy rivers
Melted poles
Flooded lands
Dead humanity
And deserted lanes

We are sorry
Can we repent?
In greed and pride
No resources did we leave…

We are sorry
To turn you into zombies
Who may wait for dead
And will possibly see the planet and humanity decay!

With Grief,
An ignorant era
Who is too narcissist to think about the future.
