Rhyme to express my appreciation.

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow…

Was so touched by a school play!
Put together by students on Independence Day!
So beautifully depicted were the sentiments!
Of how we have degraded since gaining Independence!
Jealousy, selfishness, greed, which we do experience!

Discipline, cleanliness, culture, which have no presence!
India, a country that was so glorious in the past!
Is now being completely torn apart!
So much so that the country bleeds!
To change ourselves, the Indian Flag pleads!
The heartening fact was the awareness of the youth today!
Coz they can shape the future and change how it is today!
Their awareness itself was so reassuring!
With youth such as these, the country’s future looks promising!
