Why is there silence everywhere?
Why are the streets lonely?
Why are the swings empty?
Why are the parks desolate?
Why are the grandparents sad?
Where is all chirping gone?
Where has all innocence eloped?
Where are all gossips gone?
Who is the culprit? Where is it?
Do you know? Do you know?
Why are we silent?
Why is nobody protesting?
Yes, change is good but at this cost?
Should we blame gadgets, social media?
No, they are not only the real culprits
The real culprit is -I, me and you
We could not strike a balance
To make our life comfortable and easier
We have handed these gadgets to our kids
But where is the check? Where is the limit?
Social media has made the world a closer place
But who will teach kids that it is not only the place?
We are ignoring health issues. Stubborn kids, neglecting elders
The issues need to be addressed timely and wisely
The kids need to learn that without these also they can live happily
We need to tell kids what is good and bad
And for these material things we should not be mad
All the colors are important to make a rainbow
We need to teach them with examples and show
The warmth of grandparents loves, and experience is in their stories
The fresh air and playing with a friend leaves parents with no worries
Yes, we need to strike a balance fast
And help to make our memories last
Social media and gadgets are a necessity
They should not take a central role but be only a facility
Let’s all pledge to give our kids a better and a beautiful world and wonderful place
Where they know the comforts and difficulties and are always ready to face
Let’s give them memories in heart to cherish
Which will stay forever and never perish
