Are You Really Busy?

Are we pretending to be busy?
Or are we merely being lazy?

Potato couch in the making
Having no time, we are faking

Engrossed are we in the virtual world
Reality bites and beneath us is curled

Relationships which used to be magical
Have been lost and become whimsical

We are more bothered about appearance
Moral values, ethics into disappearance

We forget our family, friends and peer
For we fear that we would be in the rear

Hardly do we have time for expression
On our toes,striving andin depression

Running for the rat race is the tension
Of stresses and lows we hardly mention

Let's stop and look within us
Realize we are are not busy, it's just a fuss

Let's enjoy the bountless beauty of God
Give in to the pleasures and give it a nod
