Year 3016

Year 3016

A Poem by Riddhi

A story of future world this is,
100 years from now in 3016 this story's place is.
100 years from today,
In 3016 there will be only black days.
Machines won't be controlled by us,
But we would be controlled my machines.

An old man of 3016 says remembering his childhood,
That there used to be trees with beautiful logs of wood.
There used to be a place for sentiments and feelings ,
there used to be bond between humans like siblings.

He continues by telling his present in 3016 ,
That no human has trust on each other and think each other mean.
They have no beautiful environment and nature ,
which will be seen and enjoyed happily by old and mature.

To breathe, there is no fresh air ,
for poisonous gases rich industrialists don't care.
Everywhere there is only destruction ,
True relation has nowhere its foundation for construction.

Then he curses his ancestors of 2016 ,
saying them mad and mean.
Says this 3016 punishment ,
was their testament.

They paved the way for destruction ,
they were cause of this bad condition.
They used resources unlimitedly ,
They harmed mother nature recklessly.

They sowed the seeds of fragile relation ,
by fighting with other nation.
They never preferred peace but always war ,
sufferers the people of 3016 are.

Hey , friends just one last question ,
Do you all want in 3016 such condition?
Then please do reform yourself ,
from curses of your descendants in 3016 you can protect yourself.


Adopt a witful approach towards environment ,
Not only for fulfilling ones selfish needs human life is meant.
At least care about your future generation ,
Do not fight with other nation....

Thank you..I am glad to know that you liked this poem and agree with me..
Your writing accomplishes something extraordinary- it focuses on issues that we currently face and takes those issues to apply them in thought provoking ways to the present and future. It is a true delight and honor to read such retrospective material. I feel if words such as these were more prevalent it would help to ease the worlds absurd dependence on technology and humankind would be more receptive to acknowledging one another as we should- as brothers.

Thank you maasi for your review...
Two year old write but depicts so many facets of the world. Indeed 2016 was no a tranquil year for people because everything that makes us a better human being is being murdered gradually. Jumping into 3016 might take you to a society where you will be having a bond more with the droids than the people just like you stated in your very 1st stanza "Machines won't be controlled by us, But we would be controlled my machines." it shows a very clear picture.
Exactly by 3016, people will get to spend black days because we are erasing all the colors, people even from the 1000 year back era have wasted all their energies in burning the colors of the environment. Your poem has made me experience every detail you penned there. And the second last stanza, it raised a very arresting question that makes me regret for not protecting environment from out attacks. A very great read girl. A very captivating one.

Very prophetic indeed. Being young and on Another Continent, you probably never heard the song ---- In the year 2525--- by Zager and Evans. You can look that up online. Came out about 1969.

2018, kids are starving, wars are still ravaging.
You might say the human race really hasn't moved at all.
Yet in other ways, diseases that once killed have been eradicated.
One thing will never change. The rich will still be rich.

A very thoughtful write, Riddhi. We need more young and bright people like you to bring back the world from the brink. Your pen speaks here and quite imaginatively. The future of earth never ceases to interest me and there may be many changes in a thousand years. Supreme control by bots is just one of them. There are other things like teleportation, space travel, levitation etc. And there is endless, interesting stuff to read on it all. Well written and much enjoyed, my friend! ⚘
