It's Time You Introspect


You keep on chasing money
As if it is prime;
Even for your dear ones
Why don't you have time?

Turning slowly into a machine
You are working day and night;
Materialism has put fetters around
It's sad to see your plight.

Forgetting your true motive here
You are living in a delusion;
Your destination will never arrive
No matter how fast you run.

You claim to be affluent
In reality you are wretched;
Give yourself some room dear
It is time you introspect.
