Growth was implicit and not explained at birth,

Life was meant to be precious and full of mirth.

We were born buxom with innate delicacy,

Every act of ours was treated with purity.

The dingy clouds signified arrival of rains,

While some standing still gave shivering pains.

Growing years of life made everyday tough,

Simile to a sprout popping out of the rough.

Imagination and diligence was the power once a while,

Money speaks stubbornly in today’s walks of life.

People are to be loved and things to be used,

Switching the words above gave rise to excuse.

Promises once given meant to be kept in real,

Changing of years made promises ethereal.

To love someone was two-sided analogous,

Changing times have made love look frivolous.

Groups were made by general interaction,

Seeking to get accepted now happens in every situation.

Events looked delectable when served on a decorated plate,

Life today doesn’t give options to the questions on our daily slate.

Times have changed causing inhibitions and asking for explanations,

Strong..Stronger..Strongest is the only way to face today’s conjunctures..!!
