Hypocrisy and hypocrites are everywhere
This is the world we are living in?
Where all the good people gone?

What is said, is not meant, and what is meant is not done
Smile for the sake of smiling, shake hands for the sake of shaking them
Nothing comes from the heart and soul.

This is the world we are living in
We say culture is important, we need to uphold them
At the same time, we are the one who breaks them, and use it where it suits us only

We are of human race,
Homo sapiens
, no doubt about that
Religion, ethnicity, caste and creed, now there is a doubt
Sense of belonging, to a group is most important that anything else in the world

Who do we belong to? What we belong to? Why?
Does it matter, if I'm a Jewish, and marry a Muslim?
Doest it matter, if I'm a Christian and converts to Buddhism?

Why it matters to many, and why it does not matter to some?
Why some say, they don't have to belong to this group, and still live a good life?
The other says that this is what we are, and we should not change this!

What we are changing here? Is it the basic essence of ourselves that we are changing?
Are we changing a way of life or simply going out of this group, to live our own life?
Would this change, changes the balance of the universe forever?

Why the fear, my dear hypocrites of the world?
Have you not changed silently before, and then coming back to re-join?
Even being in the group, you still do not uphold the principles and philosophy of it.

Superficial, the outer layer, that's what matters
Inner core, is not something that to be seen outside, and this can be forgotten
This is what happening, and this is what perceives to be important

We are unique, and yet we are same in many different ways
We force everyone else to believe, in what we believe in.
We believe that we need to bring back those who sway from this way

It is noble on how we save each other
How noble it can be if what we do, is actually destroying some one else's happiness
We continue to do this, thinking we are saving them

What we are saving here?
Are we saving ourselves, as by not saving the "drifters" we will be damned?
Damnation of the self that is the greatest fear

What is there to fear?
We are made of flesh and blood bearing the soul that operates the body with our mind
Then where are all this religion, race, caste and creed here?

A way of life, this is how it all started
A guide for the people, to live in peace and harmony in this universe
What this has become now? Wage War to uphold this?

Hypocrites of the world!
Stop this lie and deceit in the name of religion, ethnicity, caste and creed
Don't you see what this is doing to us, the human soul?

We are becoming soulless creatures, driven by this hypocrisy
We are becoming animals with religion, and culture
Why we are lying to ourselves and others?

  1. ...because if you don't lie and being a hypocrite, people will scorn and look down on you. Nobody will call a beggar his friend even if he has seen him for 10 years. But will quickly say that dato is his friend on the next minute he was introduced. Princess Diana was the queen of heart for holding a spastic child for just a minute. But her mother had been caring and holding her for 10 years was not called queen of heart. A man will tell you that he would rather push his two friends into the river to save a chest of treasure because the sampan cannot hold too much weight. A woman would rather marry a wealthy man than a poor sincere man. And the list goes on. Accept these as facts but don't have to believe in them. This world is not worth living. I just don't know why people are so afraid to die.

  2. ...because people are afraid of the unknown; and dying is, despite the pictures of heaven or hell that every clergy tries to paint into everyone's mind, still remains the unknown..
