THE WORLD TODAY!

THE WORLD TODAY
(Inspired by Eminem)
-Sahil K
What da hell do we want in life?
Struggle? Turf? Power? Wealth or pride?

Do we need power inducing pelf?
Causing disturbances and confusing ourselves!

Confused and driven to da point frm where theres no turning bak!
When feelings go immaterial All da strangle things are “dope” n “whack”!

Is dis what life denotes? Is dis wat our existence means?
Though this world is complacent, the fire in my heart weans!

We are so bloody fascinated abt what is cool!
Looks like we are all like minded fools!

Many say “I AM WHO I AM”, “BE URSELF” and other great things
To all dis, Who da hell is really following??

People think saying da word Fuck a 100 times makes them cool!
God bless ‘em, they’re ill, they are da biggest swearing fools!

Masks, fake smiles and tailor made attitudes for da occasion!
Anything to pretend cool, to quench that yearning sensation!

I tell u, it ain’t abt really showing that u’re cool or not
Its abt losing urself, giving it al u’ve got in 1 single shot!

It ain’t abt da gizmos, da ipods, da Xboxes or da play stations,
Its abt bringing to da fore, ur ideas and imagination!

It ain’t abt da lingo, speech or swears
It’s all abt u and how u care!

It ain’t abt da pubs, girls, bikes or cars!
Its abt overcoming ur inner demons and scars

Many may hate me or criticize what I say!
But they all know it’s true all da way

When will da world grow out of such obsessions?
I check my brain-Damn..no answer in my deepest of imaginations!

Peace……!

It's not just a nice poem but also a worthy thought... When the confusion, the craving for popularity and lack of maturity meet in a person they are bound to lead him to a wrong direction... Indeed a well written piece.. I think what Shravya told me abt your blog was totally true.
