From houses we are driven to schools, from schools we are asked to go to colleges and from colleges where shall we go? If we are told society is our next step it is not the same society which was described to us in the schools and colleges we are given a rosy picture of above, hereby and truth in abundance. But we find hatred, hypocrisy dishonesty and falsehood prevailing in plenty we enter the world dreaming of all these promised things but we find ourselves, thrown into the fire of misery and want out of frustration while we long for a full life of place, plenty and prosperity we pray at learn we are given a little bit of that life.
