Roots and Wings – A Poem

Composed by Ishika Kawatra, a grade 10 student.

Roots are something that remind you of home
It could be your culture , it could be the streets you used to roam
Its not wrong to go with your friends to the mall.
Neither it is to stay in with your grandma and listen to her stories under her pashmina shawl…

Roots are something that remind you of home
It could be your culture , it could be the streets you used to roam
Its not wrong to go with your friends to the mall.
Neither it is to stay in with your grandma and listen to her stories under her pashmina shawl 

Its not wrong to take a flight to a faraway land 
But you should also not forget the memories you made with your childhood clan
They are the memories of your life most grand 
For they include the people who will always lend you a helping hand 

Touch the sky and keep your feet on the ground 
For it is the nature most profound 
Before befriending anyone , never consider their background 
This is how you will become the person most renowned 

The stories of Mahabharata and Ramayan 
Are as important as the Panchatantra lion
Science definitely does expand your horizon 
And technology for sure does increase your alliance 

New ideas bring you excitement , old ones give you joy 
You should never throw away your childhood teddy bear for a new toy If your past is the moon , your future is the sun 
Your roots teach you lessons in ways more than one 

Going down the memory lane makes you feel nostalgic 
Since these memories are always filled with a magic 
Following your culture makes you feel connected 
Since the traditions are always filled with a splendid 

If modernisation makes you fly 
If civilisation takes you to the sky 
Science gives you new wings 
And technology truly is a blessing

Your grandparents taught you to stand tall 
Your parents taught you never to let anything make you fall 
The new technology taught you to make a zoom call 
The science taught you to make the most of all

Never forget your grandma’s food’s taste 
No matter how delicious the restaurant’s food is
Food cooked with her love is something you will always miss
Having food made by her truly is a bliss

May I give this one piece of advice 
Think it over twice or thrice 
A sense of belongingness for your country would suffice 
For you , your country is a paradise
