A young mind


-By Archisha Budhiraja

The colors of snow,
The colors of light,
The colors of life are so bright,
The colors of a parrot,
Red, blue, green,

The colors of a rainbow.
Are the colors that gleam.
The colors of nature,
The colors of belief,
The colors of truth,

Are the colors that light up the life
But these colors wouldn’t last for long
If we keep cutting them with axes so
The trees in the jungle, the water in the stream
Will then in the future become a dream

So let’s join hands to be one
And protect our environment
from every destroyer that comes
