For all those who think that our conscience gets a blow as we grow up.

Not so long ago we were doing everything freewheelingly all the time.
The time when we didn't care what we were doing and we were singing all those rhymes.
Back in the days when chocolate was a luxury and happiness was free,
Life was felicitous and we were satisfied to the highest degree.

 


Now that naiveness is gone and our head is invaded by an insatiable thirst for power and money,
Deception is our common trait and sarcasm is our way of being funny.
We think that happiness is locked away in some chest and wealth is somehow the key.
Can someone please tell us,What happened to the beauty inside of you and me?
