Gaea’s Reply

Standard

We used to have such good terms, you know!

But you ruined it all….

Didn’t I cut my womb n give you food, just to satisfy your hunger ?
Didn’t I give you the entire river, so that you could quench your thirst ?
Didn’t I wrap you up, so that you could shield from heat, cold and rains?

You used to ask and take from me thanklessly,
in return, did I ask anything from you?

I kept satisfying your greed…
For I was Gaea.

But I too have some limit,
for when you started to run out of control,
I need to remind you as to who runs the house…

So,
When you started to make me bald
and take away my trees,
I had to make you thirsty and starve you for water

When you started to clearing off the lands,
and take away from grains,
I was forced to starve you for food

Now that you are greedy,
and you want more,

So here is the deal to set you right…

You want rain,
I give you floods…

You want less rain,
I give you drought….

You want land,
You get infertile piece of junk

You want food,
You get famine…

It took some time,
But I have understood you now..
If you can impoverish your mother,
then you can do anything to fulfill your greed…

Be we wary of me,
for your thanklessness,
I am coming after you,
to reclaim what is mine
and strip you off what you have,

But irony still remains,
You ignorant shall still ask Above,

What wrong did I do ??

I am Rain

Like many other things,
I am perceived differently, at different points of time…
It is me, who sets the mood,
but it is also me, who kills the mood…
Worshiped, when I am required,
But loathed when I share a bit more than needed…
Though I give birth to millions,
But I am hardly noticed…
If, however, I kill a few,
No one else is blamed except me…
One dances at sight of me, dances with me,
While other is afraid to even touch me….
For Ravi goes into hiding, when I arrive
But with him, I paint the sky with the seven colors….
I signal the prosperity that lay ahead…
But I also bring forth destruction..
For not me, the Oceans will rot..
For not me, the winds shall never be a cold breeze
For not me, the earth shall go dry
For not me, the fire shall dominate
I am to be venerated, for I bring the joy
I am to be loved, for I am romantic
I am to be feared, for I can destroy
For I am the Rain…
