beside, yet left aside

Updated on November 12, 2015

ensuring its own riches, with materialistic might,
endlessly grip, binding thou minds,
fake stars, are the street-lights,
city, stays alive,
at thou stake.

ensuring riches, through elemental might,
day'n'night skies, caresses thou sight,
seasonal sprouts, bring bounty to our plates,
countryside, is alive,
for thou sake.

simple village folks,
toiling for thy sake,
are beside, yet left aside.

      I wish I could write more like this, but I'm mainly lyrical. I can't seem to stray far from that. However, this was really pretty! Good job Hari!
