Trends!!

Sometimes I wonder,

How much of our lives these days,

Are lived following the trends,

Which the society follows as a craze!!

Why do when people have to talk,

It is customary to go for a drink?

We land up somewhere too loud,

Where you can do anything but talk!!

Why is the Rs 50 coffee so popular,

The only thing is you can talk for hours!

What happened to sitting and eating,

At a place which we can call ours!!

Why doesn’t it pain to tip Rs 50-100,

At a high end hotel, restaurant or bar!

Then why does it pain to contribute,

The same amount for a good cause!!

And how much do we indulge in,

Pleasing our taste buds by mindless eating!

Do we no longer care, or do we lack,

The self-power to deny anything appealing!!

Why is it ‘cool’ to spend more,

At a place which is high end!

It is time to ask ourselves,

Do we live only to follow the trend!!

Its amazing how much of our lives,

Is affected/governed by outside influence!

God knows what happened to traits like,

Self-control, discipline, and abstinence!!

  1. I don’t agree completely.
    I do agree that we sometimes spend more than required. But that’s only for a better quality and not becoz’ we are following any trend.
    As for drinking goes, dude, you gotta agree that loud music and drinking is super fun combination 😉
    Although, a quite time is desirable at times, but that does not rule out the urge to go on music nights.
    I think this discussion can go on for hours depending on every person’s perspective, which is different.

  2. @Tripti – Those were just my views, and as you very rightly pointed out, perspective is the key here!! And dont know why, but I seriously don’t enjoy loud music and drinking 🙁
    My point was more towards the fact that we get too tied up in our world and way of living!!
