The world we live in

The world we live in
Wants us to abide
To the norms and values
And to survive.

Is it fulfillment that it demands
Or mere existence of individuality
Immersed in the social fabric
Rebellious, distinctive but benign.

Amidst this vagaries of life
Lies the question of certainty
Unanswered, uncared for
Hidden beneath the mask of acceptance.

Truly hypocritical it may seem
To address the world exciting and mundane
But, its veracity is proven
Every time we live and die.

In all these years of mere existence
Things have changed
But our perception remained the same
Of the world we live in.

The world we hate and love
And are indifferent towards at times
The world we wish to separate from
And enjoin at the same time.

Truly, the world we live in.
