Tell on face

My father will not hesitate for a moment to tell on face
If he was convinced that pursuit will end in bad phase
He was ordinary but wonderful personality in any case
He may sometimes tell frankly everything to us

Those were the days when elders were treated with respect
Today whole trend has been changed with bad acts
Son and father don't see eye to eye and find it difficult
To pull on under same roof and some times trade the insult

People say and admit that new generation is very fast
Their plans are novel and certainly enduring last
Science has made tremendous progress with scope
To scale the ladder fast and remain always on the top

In making scientific progress it has lost the human touch
We had never expected nose dive approach as such
The personal relations are hardly built up
As everybody thinks of scoring very fast with jump

I had heard many stories from father and grandfather
They used to give top priority and affectionately bother
Whole of the family members were treated equally
Main burden for care and everything was shared wholly

Today is not the same as was yesterday
We are proving yesterday as better than today
No one knows what will be future for tomorrow?
But certainly not better for traditional family value to grow

Nothing has, in fact, changed to warrant large gap
Yet we observe it and consider it as slap
How come you value sentiments with that of material gain?
When everything is achieved after passing through considerable pain

Today we are intolerant society with zero understanding
We have failed to master the art and increased misunderstanding
Whatever progress you make or attain should be for the benefit
The mass should feel it beneficial and consider it as marvelous feat
