There was a time when I found happiness in flowers,
Streams, trees and birds and
I found others too finding happiness and
The world seemed so easy and joyful.
There was a time when money came with god's grace
No one worked hard only for it,
Those who had it shared with others and
There were only one class in society.
There was a time when men and women found
Great joy in private moments
Now here in this part of the world called Kerala,
It has become the only sin.
People now run after money and everything
Falls before it and so we cannot blame them
Whose only aim is to make it make it and make it,
Many others fall behind and the world shows its real face.
No I sit in front of my laptop because I
Cannot find any sincere friend.
I use cards and numbers and transact
For most of my needs through the net.
TV , fridge, car and their brothers
The net and tablets,
Mobile phone and memory card,
I too am now in this world.
But I smile at many faces even now
And get one back sometimes,
I smile at people, birds and animals and
Find a rare piece of light even now.
