Somewhere Along The Way - Poem by Archan Mehta

Somewhere along the way
we stopped growing
and lost sight of
the plain truth.
Instead, we rushed
here, there, everywhere
with nervous hands
and restless feet,
achieving nothing of significance.
After all, we were entangled
in fleeting pleasures:
we were too busy
and could not find
the time to smell
the roses
and gather tulips and daisies
in our palms.
Everything was for sale
and everybody had a price.
Somewhere along the way
we forgot to rebel
against arcane laws that
did not make any sense.
Somewhere along the way
we discarded the hippie
and wore a three piece suit
and joined the corporate world.
Somewhere along the way
we turned into an insensitive
and passive beast
and lost our touch
with the experience of eternity.
Somewhere along the way
we fell prey
to conventional wisdom
and peer pressure
and lost sight of our
questioning minds and inherent wisdom.
Somewhere along the way.
