No such wealth



I shall desire no such wealth
Which may spread poison and spoil the health?
Not for person but in general order
With all kinds of enmity and bad odor

Today there is mad rush for car, luxury and great style
I shall prefer to go it alone meanwhile
I shall neither try for its accumulation
Nor chase it for more and more in addition

I want no suck power and knowledge
Where there is need to prove it on sharp edge
Where it is needed only for livelihood and show
I refuse to surrender to such means and forgo

But what shall can I do against compulsion?
There is utter failure and confusion
I can't live without friends and relatives
The social set up is necessary and everybody believes

I shall have to be among one
They are the part and parcel and closely known
I shall have no guts to tell them the reality
Else they may keep me way with no dignity

If this is called heaven on earth
I shall not consider it worth
But life is yet to be lived on
Friends and people are to be kept near and won

I can wage no more struggle
The path may be full of trouble
I shall think and live like ordinary citizen
“Not all the dreams can come true” even

You need fair means to pull along
For that you got to be right or wrong
Not everything comes so easily in desired way
Something is to be compromised and put away
