Adjust to live with

Adjust to live with

Did you ever witness man with arrogance?
Blinded by fortune and millionaire by chance
You offer a drink to monkey and see the scene
Same may be the case with men when delightfully seen

No doubt reasonable amount is needed
Some of the favorable points are conceded
Yet it is useful not in all the cases
Good relation is needed in certain cases

People can be hired to garner support
Audience can be created with good efforts
But closeness and intimacy can only come from relation
There money plays no part with any of the equation

When all of sudden fortune swings in disfavor
No one may keep close relation and come near
They will sideline and keep some distance
So money plays dominant part but has less importance

Under such circumstances you may get jerk and kick
You may have all kind of disasters and fallbacks
You will be cornered from all the sides and find no favor
You will find crunch for money power

Suddenly you may find world is not meant for you
Whatever you had enjoyed earlier was dream and untrue
Roses had no smell and garden had lost charm
Everybody is now unfavorable and ready to harm

You want to forget all shocks
As sympathy has run out of stock
You may turn to heavy drinks to forget it all
This leads you to fall and dash against wall

Some good things may emerge in mind but of no use
It is too late to recover and everybody will now refuse
No help may come forward as expected
You stand downgraded in public eye and not respected

Fortune can swing any time in favor or disfavor
As seasons also come in rotation like winter and summer
What should we remember in times to come?
We must adjust to live with situation and always welcome

One interesting part of writing I would love to share with all my reader friends. I am not sure weather it may be the same case with all as I do not want to be caught in any controversy. When I sit on my personal computer, there is absolutely no thought in mind as to what is to be picked up as thought and written. These all things I leave it to the discretion of almighty to fill my mind with relevant ideas. So far I have been graced by Him and as result able to compose about 4000 poems.
