Whose value has been overestimated
All things wise and wonderful
That have always been overrated
The cynic in me set out to identify
Each one of these, one by one
Then try to figure out logically why
They acquired that weightage under the sun..
Money is probably at the top of my list
It can buy happiness, maybe it’s true
That happiness is like holding sand in your fist
As money multiplies, less happiness you accrue.
Being successful, another one I think
Because success cannot be defined
Material success can fade in a blink
Being successful is more a state of the mind..
Hard work is up there, I humbly opine-
It loosely translates into leaving the office late
Neglecting your home and family are fine
As long as you don’t have an available date..
Standing out in a crowd is overrated
When merging with the crowd is natural
You can stand alone with your ego inflated
Loneliness you may find as damage collateral.
I can fill sheets and sheets with my rant
Almost everything nowadays is overrated
If the Almighty could one wish for me grant
I’ d like to ignore them and feel satiated.
