Theme: Perspective

It is Better to be Sad

It is better to be sad,
Dejected, full of despair
In solitude --
Reflecting on life,
On its sole purpose,
Philosophy of life,
Evolution of humanity
Than be glad
Elated, over-ambitious
In a vicious company,
In a fallen factory
Of dishonesty
And mere selfishness
Minting plenty of money,
Amassing riches and wealth,
Power and pelf,
Superfluous affluence,
And other objects of futility…

Comment " Awesome truth. . . Reflection of the teachings of "Bhagwat Geeta" that it is better to lead a solely spiritual life with the purpose of human welfare without having any company instead of making umpteen meaningless money because spirituality leads to divinity. . ."
