I wonder if we have grown at all ..

Have we grown a lot?
How much has the world changed?
I wonder!

We fly,
where our legs took us to.
We measured by hours,
what is today a split-second desire.
We light the night,
and have a canopy for the day light.
What sizzles today,
will be a fading glory by night.

Have we grown a lot?
Has it changed for the better?
I wonder!

What was our daily life,
is today a tourist delight.
What was measured by health yesterday,
is measured by wealth today.
What we struggled to add,
Today, we struggle to divide.

Have we grown at all?
Has it changed at all?
I wonder!

We pummel today,
what swords slit then.
We obliterated the boundaries of kingdom,
only to build those of the countries.
We drew boundaries with an armed might,
We redefine them with economic might.
What was king and knights,
is today the presidential might.

The more we change,
the more it is the same.
I wonder!
