The middle class people





In the pages of magazines
and story-lines of TV channels,
I have always heard
about the middle class people

What we are and where we belong (?)
Disco and pop are replacing folk song
We talk about globalization,
at the cost of identity
While chasing endless dreams,
meet harsh reality

In efforts to achieve esteem ambitions
people are forgetting culture and traditions
Rich people do not have value for it,
and poor do not have time
It's the middle class that carry
the weight of expectations

(My poems also appear at http://www.poemhunter.com )

I like your poems. This time too, you are right in saying that 'middle class people actually value traditions the most'...particularly, the lines
rich people do not have value for it,
& poor do not have time
are absolutely correct.
Keep it up

Middle class..hmm

This bloc sometimes seem to run into trouble by explicitly distinguishing themselves from lower class but at the same time have profound inclination towards associating themselves with the upper class.

But, undoubtedly these bloc are the economic indicators of development.
