How Far Have We Come? - Poem by Alok Singhal

How far have we come?
To not to look back on what we left behind
Happiness is judged by the bourses
Our fates are decided by the downturn or an upsurge
No time for us to stop and think
Coz we might lose so much in a blink
Simplicity is a thing of the past
When did we meet our brethren last?
Remember the last time we said a prayer?
When was the last feast with the mayor?
Ever wrote a letter to mom and dad lately?
Remember the last time you had a look inside?
To sum up the total of good and bad
Was it more that you gave than what you had?

Isn't time to take few steps behind?
A bit of contemplation
A little thought on the mankind...
