The Balance Breaker


I am out in the open,
Staring plants and trees,
Enjoying the cool breeze,
Away from city’s squeeze.

But why am I scared?
Why does it feel so weird?
Breathing out of fear,
Even when no other human near.

Dear plants and trees—
A blessing you have been,
Grateful I am for every breath,
And the oxygen you release.

But how do I sustain?
How do I get out of this pain?
People going to a different abode.
They’re short of breath and choked.

Dear plants and trees—
You see this misery?
You’ve given O2 for free,
Never were you cagey.

But what brought this conflict?
Between the easy give and take,
Something disrupted the nature—
An invisible and silent creature.

Dear plants and trees—
You maintain nature’s balance.
You are friends of humans.
Have mercy, be around please.

But why must I hide the reason?
The virus is around to teach,
Lesson for all humans to learn—
Failures resulted from human breach.
