ON FORGETTING ROOTS!!
Roots support tree’s body
Provide necessary foods
That its body needs
Strength for standing
Dead body tissues replacing
Themselves deep earth entrenching
Its tentacles still deeper spreading
Even rocky beds piercing
Severe down under beating
Sometimes small stones curling
As mother cuddling
Her most dearest sibling
Season after season supporting
Helping in flower sprouting flowering
And even for giving fruits so mouth watering!
But roots beneath never wavering
Never forget if any parts gets pounding
The roots gives emotional feeling.
What happens when branches
Flowers and fruits
Just forget roots!
Leave poor ones
Which have exhausted
After giving her everything
So that other parts may live
And stand erect and breathe freely
Look upward in prayer mode
Feel currents of air around.
Just like a mother tends its sibling
As teacher teaches his pupil
As living things are created by Creator
As representatives are chosen by voters
As oceans are sustained by river flows
As earth inhabitants are looked after by Mother Earth
Should we ever forget these roots?
