We live in a world of opposites….


Material wealth defines success

lack of it brands you a failure.

Nature gifts us with bounties

we cruelly plunder her bare.

People cling to us when the going is good

but abandon us in our bad times.

We love holding on to the past

and worry about our future.

Passing on the blame is easy

failing to take up the  responsibility, is a challenge.

Education gives us knowledge

but ignorance of values still remains.

We get so busy trying to copy our idol

that we forget to be an original.

Gadgets virtually connect us across the globe,

yet there is total disconnect in person.

Enamored by the fake facade people put on,

we fail to recognize the real inner beauty.

Chasing shallow illusionary goals

the deep meaning of life eludes us.
