If I could make one last wish, I would ask God to change all these ruthless humans into kind-hearted trees. Then only would they understand what it’s like to live a life full of hardship and despair.
Whenever I see someone throwing plastic waste near the banks of a river or in the forests, I ask them, “Why are you not throwing the waste in the dustbin?” I often get a rude and one-sided answer, “Who cares?”
Well…I care, the trees care, nature cares, the innocent animals going extinct care, millions of poor people and children care. But these heartless humans don’t care!
Today, if someone plants a sapling in a barren land, people will shout and jeer saying, “What are we planting it for? This is not your land, this is for residential purposes.” But when someone cuts a tree, why don’t you ever find the nerve to say, “What are you cutting it for? This is not your land; this is a part of the forest!”
Humans have gone blind over the past few decades. Blind by money, power, wealth, greed and extravagant lifestyle. They live on Earth and help in spreading toxic gases, they hunt animals for their skin and meat. They use the planet like there’s one more waiting for them to destroy. I can humbly say that humans are the worst creatures that ever existed on the planet.
It is a fact that beavers, a species of rodents, help fight climate change. When these hardworking animals know their purpose in life, why don’t we? Why can’t we learn from all these precious animals who contribute to our planet?
We call our planet ‘Mother Earth’ but we don’t give respect and love to our Earth like we do to our mother.
Do not think that animals and plants can’t talk; they talk to us through their actions. But if they could speak, they would ask us why we are so heartless and greedy.
Even if you don’t answer me or have the answer to this right now, one day you will have to answer this call of nature.
