The Mundane Life of Man


We live and work and dream,

each has his little scheme.

Sometimes we laugh,

sometimes we cry,

and thus the days go by.


Man can travel at the twice the speed of sound in supersonic jets.

Man can travel at an incredible speed in bullet trains.

And skim over the ocean in a hovercraft.

In all the spheres of human activities,

the trend is to do more in a shorter period of time.


He rushes here and there,

as modern living makes great demand on him.

He snatches a hasty meal,

and dashes off again to join the daily rat race.


He leaps into bed,

tosses and turns for half the night.

Just as he is dropping off to sleep,

the alarm clock goes,

and he is up once again to begin yet another day.


For too long,

modern man has abused his body and mind.

Human nerves just cannot withstand the pace at which he lives today.

So it will only be a matter of time before they give away.

Nature never hurries,

and neither should we.
