Rainbows and Butterflies

If life was like rainbows and butterflies
There would be happiness all around
And honest smiles on all the faces
While they carried on with their lives
The sky would twinkle with shimmer
And grounds would vibrate with dances
World would sway in harmony and peace
But little by little the chips will fall off
We will become less thankful and more
Bored of a simple life with no crossed
Roads to jump through and no decision
To trample upon others to boast victory
And so wanting more from less will
Take over and our hunger to be the first
Will lead us to choosing paths of wrongs
Destroying and creating ripples of war
We each become enemy in other’s eyes
And soon the world goes back to how
It was before; bruised and hurt by us
We secretly leech on this life while we
Lie about wanting perfection knowing
That we won’t last in an ideal world
For our hearts are too tainted for light

  1. In an ideal world we won’t be happy because we’ll go around searching for that one flaw that *must* be there,because we are flawed as well, aren’t we? And we can’t be the only flawed thing in the whole world!

  2. Hope if life was like rainbows and butterflies 😦
    But for this, I think we have to wait for the complete cycle of the ‘jeevan chakra’ and let the ‘satyauga’ arrive again.
    Still I admire your diction…

    1. Thanks Dileep πŸ™‚ I’m not sure I follow the terms you have used for my lack of knowledge of language/religion but would be grateful if you could elaborate, if not too much trouble πŸ™‚

      1. SATYA YUGA (Sanskrit lang.) [from satya reality, truth + yuga age] “THE GOLDEN AGE”; The age of purity, reality and truth,when humanity is governed by gods, lasting 1,728,000 years.
        It is a belief in Hinduism that our life cycle consist of 4 stages and after that, a new SATYA YUGA arrives.
        And it is great that at the present, we all are living in the 4th era!
        Waiting for the SATYA YUGA – Life full of rainbows and butterflies πŸ™‚ At least we can try for this πŸ™‚
