How Much Is Enough?


Is insufficiency a reality?
To tunnel our mentality,
To seek the better commodity,
A ring with blue sapphire continuity,
Sold in London for one pound and fifty,
Pence: satisfied is the curiosity,
We feel insufficient and are down with syndrome,
Knocking, seeking and chasing for¬ fandom,
Is insufficiency a catalyst?
To strive further to be fulfilled,
Or left with scars of wounded efforts,
Insufficiency has been the reality,
In poor part of the world,
But it is created in the rich households,
Thank the entrepreneurial spirit,
For making us all to stand on our toes,
Our minds are clouded with insufficient masks,
our ancestors lived beside the springs,
but we are left with a water tank,
that has to be refilled not to be empty,
we will be insufficient all our life.
