A Voice for Change: Ayaan Chettiar (India, age 12).
Ayaan is not your typical pre-teen, I must say. He has already garnered attention on the global stage through his exceptional talent in chess, earning international recognition. Beyond his dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence in chess, Ayaan has also achieved international recognition in Mathematics Olympiads. But his talents extend beyond the realms of logic and strategy, as he is an ardent reader and a budding writer, crafting stories and poems that capture the essence of his thoughts and feelings.
I invite you today to delve into Ayaan’s thought-provoking poem “Climate Change,” a poem that reflects his deep concern for the environment and his keen understanding of the global challenges posed by climate change.
“Climate Change” – A Poetic Call for Environmental Action
Us humans live in recent times,
The apex species in our minds,
But this growing world brings with it change,
Our climate changing day-by-day!
Our globe seems to simply heat up,
Climate Change is all the talk,
With greenhouse gases in the air,
Our ecosystem seems to tear!
The pollution levels seem to rise,
A global threat, this is, that’s right!
With CO2 now in excess,
Our community has been compressed!
The ozone layer now torn apart,
The UV Rays upon us hard,
The ice caps melt to water plain,
Causing floods in areas far and near!
The modern world never ceases to grow,
However, nature’s interests are put on hold,
Trees chopped down, whole forests gone,
Our fertile land now cities’ homes!
This newfound threat attacks our lives,
Against global warming we must fight,
Restore our lands to clean and green,
So that in our future lives, we may succeed!
