The water says…Few decades back I was very cheerful,Every drop of mine was peaceful.

I was free from all the fears,Now the tap remains open and I shed my tears.

I used to move freely in the river,But now I suffer from toxic fever.

You throw your garbage in me,I tolerate the chemicals and you say, “Let it be”.

You need me in factories,As well as to wash your groceries.You need me for bathing,For gardening, cultivating and cleaning.

I am in your hands, Be kind,Don’t waste me, Keep it in your mind.

Every drop of mine is a boon,And you will know my importance soon!!! 

Dear Humans, I’m your life… Save me!!!
