The dawn of civilization
is a piece of history that we always love to look
And imagine our own world,
where it is today and the time it really took !
From the bullock cart and muddy road,
to sonic jet and super highway
The world has come closer,
to build the bridges, and prevent any sway !
Modern science can take us
from one pole to other with the blinking of an eye
And allows us to communicate quietly,
without any travel, just to say goodbye !
Now the people are fearless,
'cause they have conquered the nature unknown
By taming the odds against their will
and in museums, they are neatly shown !
At times we are paying the tolls
for the changes that we have made
And thoughts start to wonder,
when the devoted minds like to fade !
Solutions of pollution are taking time
from our so-called beneficial plans
And placing the "progress" back in a circle,
to dignify the political clans!
Ancient life was harder in many ways,
but people had some peace of mind
Because of the honesty and simplicity
that nowhere now we can really find !
Air was so cleaner, soil chemical free,
and water was safer to drink
But today the pollutants frighten us
to stumble and help us to shrink !
True love and old respect are fading away
quickly from the modern culture now
While 'Internet' and 'Intranet'
are taking over daily to direct our lives somehow !
Emotions or friendships may be expressed well,
through the strokes of a keyboard or the mouse
And now memory chips in compu-brain
are sources of our knowledge, like a storage warehouse !
We appreciate the beauty of modern age,
swamped with the whistles and bells
Tangled with all kinds of progress
over the time and buried well in all the tales !
But the dawn of present civilizations
still allows us to miss, and leads us to think
About life's simplicity or devotion to God,
while it mends promised missing link!
