Wakefulness in place of sleep

Gastronome pleasure in place of health

The much desired promotion at any cost 

Increasing bank balance instead of family time

Keeping up with Joneses at the cost of peace of mind

The pursuit of vote bank at the expense of environment

Megalomanic schemes at the cost of world peace.

Paying a heavy price for what we assume is success

As we set forth to tame and conquer the world

We stoop, we compromise

We go on sacrificing what is important 

In the mistaken belief that what we hanker for

Will buy us everlasting happiness.

Thus ending up with 

An emptiness within, restlessness and bad karma.
