Why is the world the way it is;
with some people so rich and living a life of luxury;
while others fighting life on a daily basis;
fighting hunger, winter, exploitation and poverty?
Why some can afford diamonds;
and others do not know if they would get their next meal?
Why some can splurge, waste without a thought;
and others cannot even afford the basic necessities?
Why some talk of work-life balance;
and others work 365 days of the year?
Why some can think of the purpose of life;
and others live a life of struggle and fear?
Why some talk of new job, higher studies;
while others cannot send their children to study?
Why some employ young children and exploit them;
while others have accepted exploitation as their destiny?
Why some enjoy all the pleasures of the world;
while others can not even move, speak or hear?
Why some enjoy a pleasant childhood and comfortable old age;
while others are abandoned by people so near and dear?
Why has God not created an equal world;
why the disparity in existence of everyone?
He must have had some logic behind all this inequality;
I am not able to appreciate God’s way of creations.
I only stand and ask questions;
questioning my purpose of life
As I stand on the good side of this imbalance;
I wish, I can do something worthwhile.
