“House on fire”

Trees continue burning,

hearts continue melting,

what is happening in Australia,

why does it feel like no one is helping?

The one who raised and protected us,

Mother Earth looks vague now,

she decides to disappear gradually,

however it’s something we cannot allow.

This is not the Australia we know,

it’s far worse and unpleasant,

and it may feel like hell soon,

unless we do some amendment.

Estimated 1 billion animals have died,

in this catastrophe,

around 6 million hectares of land,

were incinerated so swiftly.

Bushfires keep on coming,

destroying lives of animals & indigenous,

we are at the brink of our future,

now in 2020 we need to be vigilant.

It’s time to wake up and face the reality,

it’s time to shape our fate,

we can’t step back from this situation,

we have to act; we can’t wait…

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
