Money vs Humanity

Poetry, Writer life

It breaks my heart everyday,
To see the world, go this way.
Where money triumphs over humanity
Each of us loosing sanity.
I do not claim to be a saint,
I do wish to enjoy the world’s bests.
I want to own all things money can buy,
But never at the cost of humanity.
When a doctor turns a patient away,
I wonder where is humanity.
Just because he can’t afford the treatment,
Does he deserve to be dead?
Poor students who can’t afford tuition,
Don’t they deserve education?
Why do schools turn them away?
Is it always all about money?
Food and medicines are adulterated,
This insanity has to be dreaded.
Oh god! Where is humanity?
Where’s our ethics and dignity?
It breaks my heart everyday,
To see the world, go this way.
Where money triumphs over humanity,
Each of us loosing sanity.

  1. Very well written. Heartfelt. But education, doctors etc are a part of social system. In many countries it’s free of cost. I wish each & every country could provide its citizen the basic need of education & health. But apparently & sadly the reality is something different.

    1. True. There are people starving, dying, suffering, and it’s okay if one can’t go save the world. But little acts of generosity does matter. And it sucks when people fail to be humane. It’s not fair to expect a doctor to treat people witout fees, they are human too and need to sustain their life and support their family. But giving them some advice to ease their pain instead of shooing them away like pests is essential. It’s basic! Same goes with education, business houses, etc. Few kind words and little help can go a long way.

  2. You have expressed the common exasperation that most people are feeling right now which makes this so relatable. I love the flow and the opening stanza at the end in refrain. Beautifully written!

  3. I know a lot of people who feel the same as you including myself of this being the reality of things. I still have hope inside that someday things will change.

  7. Still there is a group of people who strongly follows ethics and humanitarian values. The Doctors, nurses and related people who is to control this situation have ethics and values in life. But a group of people who don’t this qualities are destroying this world.
