Co-ordinates of life
This is the time boat on the ocean of uncertainty
Sat on for money with veiled shawl of conformity
‘Tween the two, ordinate and abscissa, the life
We measured, blindly unto future we strife!
Train of life runs ‘tween the lines, dainty
Love, relation, affinity, all boarded in and
All together for unknown journey, no end
Keeps on moving, uncertainty to certainty….
‘Tween the two lines, time and the money..
Eyes wide open, stony; with doggy’s tongue
Ready to sacrifice all; mind to body; a rogue
For the life: Future: Honey is no more honey.
No family, no relation all fragile and plastic
We have changed a change; ah so drastic
A bar, a hotel, a restaurant, a palace for dating
A quest for peace of lost faith, a false rating.
Future turned into phobia, fear into the heart
Certain uncertain, uncertain certain, a baby mirth
A nail hammered on the wall of heart to hang
A poster of love, humanity shut with a bang
“Tween the two co-ordinate it woos but woe
A nail pierced on the toe, yet unaware the roué
“Tween the two co-ordinate humanity sang
Time and money and nothing else, a pang///
