A Change For The Worse - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
How people can change o'er the years!
It looks so strange and much absurd;
A tragic fact, reality,
That causes pain much in one's heart.
When people change just for the worse,
They have no excuse good to give;
With principles thrown in the wind,
Selfishness rules their hearts and minds.
The years of rearing vanishes
And parents' struggles, sacrifice;
Religious tenets are forgot;
People behave in awful ways.
Love for the neighbor seems so rare;
Hatred afills most hearts of love;
Coldness in attitude prevails;
‘They say they are now worldly-wise! '
Years of hard-work and harmony
Is now a sad thing of the past;
How families get so estranged!
Each one can be so unfriendly.
Friends have become worse than strangers;
Relatives have become scattered;
Some people known are worse than foes;
The world has gone topsy-turvy!
Welcome is change for better, good;
But none can accept change for worse;
It happens among kith and kin!
The world has just gone upside down!
