As I sit down with a pen and a pad
To wipe off this melancholy with a swab
I try to break this deafening chime Searching for some rhythm and some rhyme
Concoction of words from here and there
Put together to help me somehow share Share the intricacies of my heart
Waiting for the monotony to depart
There are some who always bear a smile
Pretending as if every thing is sublime But the truth is that life somehow irks
For some due to work, for some no work
Life is becoming alienating day by day Clouding our thoughts from the warming rays
Everyone is moving at one's own pace Trying to outdo others in an impersonal race
Money has taken the centre stage Everyone incarcerated in this binding cage
It is the means and the end to all
Lifting some, while the others fall
Since childhood, we just hear this rant
Preparing us for a life like a worker ant There is none who escapes this labyrinth
All stuck here, be the pauper or the king
I want to be a heretic, not one of them
Bask in eternal sunshine, not eclipsed protem
But I realise, even this sunshine comes at a cost
Find myself ensnared here, just out of sorts
Like others, I am dependent on all of these
The gadgets, the commodities, the material things
Can you sacrifice these to live peacefully
No, replies my adulterated heart sheepishly.
thoughtful n interestin :)

Very nice post. I was about to write a post on 'Fear' which may have some similar ideologies. Will let you know once I post that. It would be great if you write more like this.
My adulterated heart is also sad for the same :(
