Walk the full mile, else do not walk at all

Stay connected for a life time, else do not connect at all

Relations that be subject to temperamental whims and fantasies

Were never the relations meant to be kept at all.

Materialism devours all relationships, good, big or small

Yet for the present times, what gives returns is the test of sustainable

relations

Beyond that, is all but false!!

A day in the life of a man

A day which brings him to a closure of a year gone by

A day, a date, significant of the birth of the man

A day that brings him closer to the end of life

Yet, we celebrate, an event of the yore

Yet, we celebrate, a date, not more meaningful than

Anything but the man

O ye all, who join together to wish me, virtually now

Thanks but no thanks

For, had it not been the gift of virtual existence

There would have not been the virtual expression of happiness

Of the date, when apart from me coming into existence

The world would have gone on, unmindful of my being born

I wonder always, what good have I been for the world

For if not, why and what would be the reason to rejoice

On the change in clock, that brings upon the time

That makes you say Happy Birthday
