A Better Tomorrow




A growing discontent prevailing chaos
   Rising intolerance spell doomsday halo
Never ending greed n desires shallow
   Reckless actions speak of minds narrow
 An ever growing economic divide
   Leaves trail of misery tell tales of sorrow
 Vagaries of weather grey n dark
    Will we see a better tomorrow?

  1. This question is looming large. Everyday our actions are making us more close-minded and the economic divide is more pronounced. Few but brilliant lines forcing us to think that things should be changed to make tomorrow better

  4. We are constantly feeling the need for a better tomorrow now than ever before and the change towards it ought to start from today and our very own selves. A very profound question to ask indeed, only our good thoughts and actions today can inspire a better tomorrow.

  5. Yes, Rahul. We will see a better tomorrow. In spite of the growing crime rate, discontent and other negative things. What goes down must come up.

    But then, I wear rose colored glasses. :-)

  6. Hmmm such a meaning full lines and how well you have mentioned the state we all are in. I always wonder rahul sir, if we continue in current state what would history books have in future about this era... Era of scams, low economy,rapes and crimes. The era where developing country went back to stone age because of greed of few!!!

    Yes we I have the same question will we see better tomorrow????

  11. 'Will we see a better tomorrow?' - Something to think about for sure!

    If we want the answer to be 'yes' then I think we will have to learn to have some empathy towards others, and broaden our definition of 'we' to look beyond ourselves and our immediate families.

  15. You have noted down all that plagues mankind so well in this exceptional poem. And the final line leaves much to the readers hopes and personal thought process. For the pessimists, things will continue to spiral downwards and for the optimists, we will find hope in the future.
