So They Say: A Poem by Arjun Madhok

So, this is it?

Or has it always been like this?

Are we falling or rising?

What you do vs. who you are

Money vs. values

An ambitious climb vs. family time

Independence vs. emotions

Freedom vs. choice

In today’s world,

How am I to know

For I am still learning!

But sometimes,

If I don’t act the same

Might I get left behind?

Then why the struggle

Of some balance to find?

Isn’t the world changing


And hence striving


A cleaner, kinder, more peaceful world?

Far from global warming, mean streets


A better mankind.

2008, Arjun Madhok
