My friend at a corporate company was at the pinnacle of success when one fine day he just collapsed and was declared dead - Reason? Maddening work routine, 15 to 20 hours a day. All that fortune he earned did not help him to lead a peaceful life.

Work, work and more work

Isn’t it all just for money?

No wonder it’s by sheer luck

I survive this monotony


 
Life isn’t any more charm

Its a devil's race that goes amok

wish I could but stay calm

to work, work and forever work

Sorry to hear about your friend, another life cut short. Do you ever wonder how life would be if we devoted the time to God and improving all mankind??? Interesting piece...

Be always safe,

Very well said. We work until we're dead,
Then wonder why we lost the life we never lead.
