First century of the 3rd millennium,
Yes, it's the 21st century we live in.
The current era where we are officially is the Holocene age.
An age that came into existence,
With past magical big bang theory's grace.
Marked by the rise of a global economy and Third World consumerism,
Deepening global concern over terrorism and an increase in private enterprises,
Effects of global warming and rising sea levels, with eight islands disappearing between 2007 and 2014.
21st century began with so much of changes,
From societal shifts to technology,
And environment to our mentality,
Nothing remain constant,
Since, everything is temporary and undergo changes.
Some things either progress or deteriorates,
Some things either grows becoming much better or gets worse,
Some things either get improved or get dominated.
List can go long,
The short summary is that everything is a slave of time and bear changes.
With the proliferation of mobile devices,
more than half of the world's population obtained access to internet.
With any query in mind,
Most of us can search anywhere anything anytime quickly, using the superhighway - cyber server called the web.
Advancement of the sum total of human knowledge and information, continues to grow at an exponential rate but what's important is to use knowledge in right direction.
With success of the Human Genome Project, DNA sequencing services became available in the world,
From maths, science to arts and entertainment,
There's too much of development but also some concerns.
War and violence has declined considerably compared to the 20th.
But the inner war people suffers are more than ever,
Suicidal thoughts, anxiety and depression has risen.
People need to realise their purpose and cherish life to its fullest.
Somewhere there's malnourishment and poverty,
And somewhere people waste the food throwing in dustbin.
Somewhere people are worshipping God and prasing their own religion,
Somewhere people are opting bad deeds, not fearing for their karma.
Somewhere people are not giving attention to the environment and somewhere this or that, coutless concerns are present to point fingers upon it.
Somewhere there's people thirsty, with barren lands or lack of water,
Whereas somewhere there's people wasting water and not saving.
Somewhere people choose or prefer to be self centred,
Somewhere people open up and spread love and peace preaching goodness and kindness.
As if, it can be said,
there's opposite of everything one could be or see.
Where there is goodness,
There is also something bad to feel.
Where there is development,
There will be also some drawbacks, and somewhere it must be opposite of development,
ponderous all these things are!
That's how it is,
That's what it always will be.
Which one we choose to be,
Always is in our hands.
Leading oneself to right direction,
Knowing the concerns and following the ways to wash them away,
Being a leader, individually bring the right changes for improvements,
Using knowledge for the betterment,
Is how we can reward our planet Earth.
It's 21st century, we live in,
Let's make us more and more worthy to be its part.
