Life's happening itself-
Everyone's envious and finicky
Greedy by nature, act and conduct
Unmindful of life affirming ethics-
A journey from birth to death.
Some build-up love for optimism
And others for the cynicism-
Playing foul is not fair in any manner
But, they often compare and measure
The worth, by fairness and beauty-
Beauty of the face and skin
But, not of the mind and heart-
Disregarding virtues and moral values.
All is happening in the garb of ego-
Each act is getting fast and furious
In animation, in the grey zones
Besieged, dazed and shocked
Since no one is found guilty.
Older and newer lots don't stand
Stand up for the core values-
Cultural death is thus eminent
Yet, a fight for life-affirming values.
