bare minimal

everyone in this world is running for more

humans are hungry, craving from the core

some want popularity, some desire wealth

at the cost of honesty, at the price of health

some want properties, some aspire for might

killing their own people their own trivial fight

the hunger for money has made humans robots

flummoxed in the oceans rowing their own boats

there is noting that money cannot purchase

the character, the body, the religion, the race

the honesty, the integrity, the mind and the soul

the patriotism, the loyality, the objectives, the goal

thoughts grow corrupt and a person turns criminal

in the pursuit of comfort, tranquility and miracle

is there so dire a need to be deliberately cynical

can’t we keep our wishes and desires to bare minimal?
