The mad dash to the finish line

These days , and these times , we seldom find
A reason to celebrate, a cause to unwind
One achievement doesnt suffice, we need another
We need to race on the mad dash, to the finish line

Taking the time tested and trialled paths
Always do what is told, and seldom ask
for reason , meaning or anything behind
this worthy cause drilled in our minds

Past graduation we realize
We’ve become the one thing , we despised
Look around, everyone is gone to break the rules
some to another plain, some back to school

Is a postgraduation
the only answer and solution?
With every generation the bar grows higher
subsiding ever more so, the inner fire

I shan’t fret , I shall wait and watch
As the forests of calm and peace get scorched
For the pace the world is moving in, is too unkind
Nothing but a mad race, to the finish line

    Yes , life can get boring without a race or two. But life, in itself should
    not move at a maddening pace, and before you know it, you shouldn’t be on the other end of the tunnel!

  3. Life is only what you make it out to be. And the “achievements” in life vary from person to person, they’re totally relative. One person might want to do a PhD, while another might drop out of high school to pursue a career in music. The way I see it, you should do what you wanna do, irrespective of what society thinks! 🙂

    I appreciate the thought, but this is not quite it. Will explain later 😀
