Now-a-days; it is very common to talk behind anybody’s back

Now-a-days; it is very common to talk behind anybody's back

Now-a-days; it is very common to talk behind anybody's back
People talk as fluently as there is nothing wrong in doing that
Repercussions of it we are unaware; and it is beyond our sight
It destroys basic fabric of society; it is a day; but we are in night

By talking behind we get nothing; except making hype
After sometime; you are exposed to you; nobody likes
And others make out; you are the person of that type
You will never be able to drive a BMW; except a bike!

Not only you break the society norms; but on you it strikes
First thing; avoid talking behind to come out of dark night
After that anywhere you go; just listen; keep your lips tight
After sometime; you will see on your face sparkle of light

Whatever you say; some people will never listen being in night
For them can't do anything; don't know taste of living in light
Because such stubborn people of society suffers day and night
They see plight of society; but don't care; as they are in limelight

We are living in educated society; but don't follow ethics with pride
We are wrong but don't listen; when somebody wants us to guide
That's where I lament character of Societies; everyone I can't bribe
With the light of education; want everybody; their intellect to ignite!
