A Rightful Fight
To help Mother Earth win her Fundamental Rights
by Aishwarya Sridhar
Captivating was the beauty of mother earth
Long before God enabled human birth.
Together formed an alluring world.
Man who was most supreme of god’s creations
Wreaked havoc on earth with his penchant for destruction.
Just as humans are protected with constitutional rights
Mother earth too has a right to fight.
A right to preserve her natural resources
And protect herself from man’s destructive forces.
A right to rotate and revolve amidst clean air
And protest the dumping of waste everywhere.
A right to save her waters from any contamination
And save her children of nature from total extinction.
A right to save her very identity
That mankind is trying to alter completely.
In a world where Might often seems to be Right
Mother Earth needs to put up a fight.
Let’s all unite and empathise with her plight
And help Mother Earth win her Fundamental Rights.
So to her who has given us life and protection
Let’s fight for her rights as a gesture of retribution.
