Your attention is the most important asset you have. Be deliberate with it.Zat Rana
What can stop thee from singing your glad song?
And inspire you to start singing a sad one?
Oh! songbird who up in the sky does belong
And shouldn’t be all alone looking so down.
I have been perched for many a morning
On a tall tree watching many a human
And have seen so much suffering transpiring
As such, on my face there is a pained frown.
Because whilst perched for many a morning
On that tree i have seen forests laid to ruin
By humans that are “Development” quoting
Destroying the nests and eggs of my brethren.
Many know that what is being done is wrong
But some simply don’t care, they have so much fun
Displaying their power, by destroying what is strong
Although they know the earth will be undone
And so, this laying waste to mother nature
Is what has stopped me from singing a glad song
And inspired me to start singing a sad one.
