Contemporary

While holding on to the past

Conforming, at a subliminal level

Making a caricature of the original thoughts

Through passage of time

Obliterating the values and authenticity

Denying the bridge that we crossed

Awareness, more at a delusional level

Being antagonistic and struggling to define

The life that once had a solid foundation

Painting a contemporary hue

Yet, the cracks of limited self-realizations

Are the glaring and jarring sights

Weakening and threatening intellectualism

It’s easier scraping off the surface

Surviving on the scrapings of knowledge

A huge gap is turning out to be an abyss

Real contemporary, does not lose relevance

With time and passing generations

Contemporary ideas are the mainstay

Of a progressive and visionary philosophy©
