A Bitter Truth


'A smile is a curve that sets things straight'

They say, I've heard
but now i wonder how fake they've become,
Its difficult indeed for a true smile to come
now eyes have less feelings to express,
for now in the heart there's left only stress.

'People now hurry in a heat of hope'

In this fury hurry,
there's only time to worry
No time to ponder upon a tree,
No time for the blackbird's melody
we're only blocked and locked
by all those clocks that mock
ticking away to glory.

In this endless race for a living,
where can one find life?
is there any end to this strife?
why cant that busy little bee,
be a little less busy in its hive?

Isn't life of most of us,
become like a faulty gramophone
playing the same line again and again?
How hectic life has grown!
that only makes us moan.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
