Sheer Madness - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

What are criteria to be called mad?
Is that one looks so gloomy and sad?
Looks so shabby and behaviour so bad
Frowning lines on face…………..

One way or other we fall in same category
Every body is after fame and glory
Different attitudes with simple story
Nothing to offer but only sorry

There is no end to our being crazy
Claiming credit despite being lazy
Going for all excuses and no regret
Novel ideas and impractical ways to suggest

Attempt to woo people for straight sympathy
Hard line approach with little apathy
Knowing not what will be the ultimate outcome?
Garnering support with praise and welcome

I know it may not help the cause
There may be serious setbacks because
It lacks sincerity, deep vision and sight
What is use of rift which causes uproar and fight?

Your lust and ambition should stop somewhere
You can’t poke your nose and fight everywhere
May be people resorting to unfair means and way
What makes you to take course in hand and have a say?

Many have tried easy way and perished
Beautiful palaces built but razed and demolished
Time and tide waits for none and play the part
What is use of presenting self clever and only smart?

We should not be driven mad and crazy
Everything must be taken in good spirit and easy
Right will always be right and wrong a wrong
Better to keep aside and concentrate for career long

Life and glory may have its destined time
We should strive for goal and object prime
It may not yield the result in near future
But it is ultimate destiny and kind of nature

    struggled very hard to make the headway
    Faced the resistance and was left midway
    Continued to strive more without feeling bad
