Modern Era

a poem by

Divya Palaniappan

What could have I probably done to be born in this era,
where people are after money,
forgetting the meaning of affection,
what could have I probably done to be in this era,
if I had been born few decades ago,
I would have had the touch of Gandhi, Shastri and Nehru
I would have known the value of truth
what could have I probably done to be born in this era,
where corruption is wide spread,
democracy fails and injustice speaks,
the society is haunted by all the evils
and the value of a human is buried,
what could have I probably done to be born in this era???
