Modern Life

Old virtues, eternal things have lost their values
What a disgraceful world, this world has become!
Matter what matters and mind nobody minds
Life itself is mere pretence now
Man distrusts man but not the masks
How ridiculous to live in this world!

Who is there to keep love, faith and promise here?
This is the world where so many great souls lived!
Sweet Shakespeare and majestic Milton
Lincoln, Gandhi and Lenin
Newton, Edison and Einstein
Buddha, Christ and Mohammed
And the list has many more to include
But now what lists have we to show?

This world has become a waste land,
Where wars and night mares prevail,
Devoid of faith, love and spirit.
Wars both physical and psychological are there
In the Name of Religion, Politics, Race and Language.

The civilization of modern life is devoid of any culture
Soon Science is sure to have sway over the world
Perhaps modern life is in a great transition...
A New World Order may be emerging
If so, an international culture with the aid of Science may come up,
And all Nations may function as One World Organization!
