The digital age

Living in the digital age,
Where fast-paced life demands
Brevity in everything, even in love-making,
Man has lost connection with his heart.

Living in a world of severe discordance,
With resurgance of ethnic and sectarian conflicts,
Where natural calamities are rampant,
And brothers severe ties with brothers,
There is confusion in man’s mind
And he can no longer sit quietly
Reminiscing his beautiful childhood days.

Spreading peace needs the body-soul symbiosis,
And to do that we need no hypnosis.
It is like a plain analysis
By people of high spirits on love’s basis.

Let us hold hands and be together
To avoid disasters one after the other.
Like chaff, we do not want to be blown by the wind,
Nor like litter, be thrown in the dustbin.
All we want is a little love and understanding
In this dangerous digital age, slowly fading.

    No to make tinkle and tinsel of this world, but to give meaning to life in compassion, empathy and love – an urgent need of the present robotic world.

    Loving heart.
