No more Evolution

Updated on June 1, 2016



Fearing being run over,
everyone's on a run.

enough for four generations,
mad is this rush, to amass.

The false promises of prosperity,
rules, the minds of our community.

forgetting, future would cost a treasure,
when natural resources are nowhere.

trampling the only earth we are possessing,
will we ever be walking the path of evolution.?


Economic growth need not be a criteria of strength of individual / country.

      In a mad rush to hoard materialistic possessions, we are forgetting the value of things which truly matter. Nice and thought-provoking lines!

      Some world leaders could learn from your thoughts. People starving in the world is unacceptable.

      All the destruction in the name of economics is no economics.

      Very interesting. GDP is a very strange measurement of quality of life.
