The poem is about the ways we humans are behaving to day, in comparison to the past. Our values and virtues have decayed, but still we need them for community cohesion. We have to nurture true love for us and the environment.

Yesterday and Today


Yesterday was today

Rain fell night and day

It was shining all times

The land was green

The moon was not visited


Among people, love was genuine

Compassion was a heartily virtue

People spoke to one other friendly

No terrorism we heard

No climate issues we knew


Love was in our hearts

Life was valued

Peace was on the land

No woman was raped

No child was on the street


But today is a different day

Homeless people here and there

Growing more desperate

Rain has gone and people are selfish

For man has become mischievous


Revenge and hatred dwell in our hearts

For dignity has become volatile

The ecosystem is damaged

Bombs and terrorism kill us

WhatsApp, TV and Facebook replaced human dialogue


Yesterday and today make the future

We need peace, neighbors and safe atmosphere

Otherwise, we are homeless

We need to live peacefully

In a conducive environment
