Am a caring, lovable, sensitive, kind-hearted mother. Yeah, am also like your mother the one who cares so much for you, feeds you, looks after you and loves you like no other. Are you baffled at the perplexity and the apparent simplicity of these definition? Few years back, my children adored me and showered their love on me. I was happy and the law of nature which holds upright decided that I shouldn't be happy.
Yeah, my children hates me. My riches are depleting, they ignore me and doesn't heed to my woes. I cried, became furious, yet, they remained the same. But I controlled my emotions and gave them all love a mother can give. I suspected Newton's third law - Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. My children snubbed me, but still I showered them with all the love I can show. After all, a mother is a mother as long as she lives. Still I remained unheeded by them. I gave them all the wonderful pleasures I can give.
I was reminded of an old anecdote. How much ever old you get, true love and worry less heart make you become young. I was very young irrespective of my age till the love was mutual. I was weak and felt age was catching up when the love was not reciprocated by my sons. Now, am completely down expecting my end anytime.
What happens when you are ignored, deplumed, begrimed? Don't you feel irritated and get furious? I did the same and they didn't understand even then! When they are with me I asked them not to do things which seriously affect my health. They smoked and they did every atrocious thing which shouldn't be done. Day by day I was dying because of their senseless activity.
Now, somehow, somewhere amidst their daily routine works they realized my importance, need, my love for them and above all they were afraid one of big thing! HOW TO LEAD A LIFE WITHOUT ME? My children now has started meeting one another and discuss ways to bring me back from the doors of death. Am smiling now. That's all I can do, though I feel pity for my children. I gave them warnings and indicated that my health is deteriorating. At that time they failed to notice that.
Whatever they do, or should I say they try to do, can just delay my death. But Can I reach my younger life back where happiness was blooming in my life, where I was living without worries? Could they zero-in the exact reason for my dropping wellness? I doubt it. They are starting from the scrap I guess, they are trying not to smoke or do such stupid things. Will that help? Yes they do, in a meager amount. Now, they can't bring back the already caused damages. They can only prevent the impairments yet to occur.
Wondering who am I?
I am MOTHER NATURE, you are my children. Do you know the problems am facing? Global warming, climate change, energy challenge, environmental degradation. Almost all non-renewable source of energy depleted. My children, Where are you guys are heading to? The meeting I told is Copenhagen Climate Conference dealing about the Global warming. Will the emission cuts alone pay off? Infact the emissions are more because of these meets. Am confused, perplexed and worn out.
SAVE ME AND SAVE YOURSELF.
