Slaves of the System

When we are born

We are taught the power of

Truth, intelligence and substance

But what happens when we grow

Nothing but become slaves of the system

We idealise Mahatma’s life

And by following his belief of

Becoming a change you want to see

And trying to apply that change to the beaten path

But then what happens when we try

Nothing but become slaves of the system

We thrive for a successful life

And try every path to get it nigh

Plans to turn the tables of our future

But often land up struggling for recognition

But then what happens when we strive

Nothing but become slaves of the system

We are young with ignited minds

Not the slaves of systems to abide by

Help us in developing systems

And not following the forbidden ones

Propel us with your experience

So that we can develop a better future for our generations.

Creativity is my core skill, be that vision to see the world or to work towards something aesthetically, creativity exists in everything. I am an academician by profession and the creative person at heart. I am a poet and got my poems published by Chandigarh Sahitya Akademi inKavya Lehri and Kavyanjali. A writer who loves writing and has written for numerous magazines and newspapers. A Blogger who runs her own blog. An artist who works towards improving her skills every now and then. A traveller who knows learning is much more outside the classroom. As a leaner is never satisfied with his/ her work, I believe to utilize the gift of human birth to the fullest and enjoy the journey than attaining the destination.
