To me, any relationship should be one's first priority, not money. I acknowledge that just being in a relationship won't get you bread at the end of the day. However, in the 21st century, money appears to take over everything. People run and live for money for various reasons, but they often forget about being in a relationship either with their family and kids or even themselves.

If you have ever been to New York, one of the most famous cities in the world, what you see is people running for jobs 24/7. New York is one of my favorite city in the world. I often visit NYC to feel like home since I was born in a city in India. One of the weird things I've noticed is that most people are always stressed. They seemed tired of everything and still surviving. The true love and happiness were buried under the glory of city lights and skyscrapers. Here's a poem about a young woman who just had him, but missed him.


And She Just Had Him

Seemed like, She was an option

Rather than a priority


New York, a city full of excitement, joy, and people

Glamorous, Attractive, and Stylish

Day and night, Skyscrapers stand with pride

Everyone is running for money and train

Even among thousands of people, often

She found herself, empty enough

Hoping, the Sun will rise again, one day!


A good friend of her, in her mind

Too shy to express her feelings,

he doesn't know, she is willing

Forever, To fall in love with him

Once upon a time, on the day of the summer solstice

Commuting on the train, She told him all

He had the same but wasn't sure


They've been in a 'relationship,' for a while

Found herself in a do-while loop

While he gets his dream job; the primacy

She thought, he was the ONE; she's been in a fantasy

She was happy for him, but couldn't stop him

Cause she loved him!

Trying to find her way to him, but couldn't


Didn't want to be his priority, but desire

He promised her, he will marry her

It was all in his eyes, wasn't gonna come for her

Busy building links, instead of this relationship

Broken but unbroken, still standing

Was chasing for what appears to be real

She was hoping, at least he would match her effort

And she just had him, but didn't
