As we grow –

Our knowledge expands

Memory increases

Vision gets dimensions

Sense of responsibility grows

Try to be part of the society

Being integrated with its values

Getting used to imposed rules and regulations!

 

Religion puts additional barriers

Defining its own notion of the world!

News media makes us attracted

To spicy and touching news

Politicians use the media

Shaping our ideological thoughts and views!

 

Commerce uses the media

Dictating our needs and greed

Scientists try hard to redefine truth

As Politicians and commerce hijack science

Leaders urge us to have family values

While ignoring the very reason of disintegration!

 

Economists ask us to be a good consumer

Maintaining buying spree with debts

Insurers want us to be covered

For the expenses incurred even when in grave!

There is no Heaven in the sky! Earth was Heaven when colonialists and their evangelists didn’t convert parts of it as Hell while motivating the slaves work harder to reach a fictitious better place “Heaven = Haven”! End of Monarchy and related colonialisms can re-establish lost Heaven on Earth, a place without borders, class, divisions, and supremacist orders! Kolki
