From the very time we are born
To the moments when we breathe our last
Life revolves around things we were sworn
Oscillating between the future and our past.
It isn’t about the right and the wrong
The quotes, the thoughts and the song
This is good and that is bad is all we hear
Snubbing the grey shades, we all bear.
As Shakespeare remarked, Man is a paradoxical being,
full of contradictions, glorious and yet scandalous.
Yet the fragile human heart expects love and forgiveness,
while what remains is just a heap of callousness.
For what we are isn’t what we seem we are
Truth reveals in the darkest of our hours
The never ending lessons on values, morality and ethic
is nothing but an overbearing societal gimmick.
