Sense Of Society

Image Source: Google

What will people say
They say it time and again
Makes no sense to us

Makes no sense to us
Giving in to society
Who defined these rules

Who defined these rules
That divide us based on caste
Can we escape it

Can we escape it
Without the curse following
Should we fight for love

Should we fight for love
Our happiness matters too
Are people aware

Are people aware
Of the society rule book
That blinds all of us

That blinds all of us
It did not make sense to them
Society wins again

  4. Why do we have to follow society always? No matter how much we try to escape it, society will always catch up. Good one, Soumya!

  8. Society makes the rulebook...we are all expected to conform...those of us who don't pay a price...in my opinion it is worth it !

  9. your heart's outpour is so sublime ! reminds me of Kundera's quote, “When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.”
    ― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

  10. Well, the concept of societies rules don't make sense to me. But there's no way out because follow it or not, the society will have something to say. So why bother?

  11. Hey Soumya!
    Very well penned. Conforming to societal norms does border on our happiness... the question I guess always lies in the realm of another question "For what cause do we fight? The status quo of societal conformity or our happiness?"

    Following you now. Great blog :)
