Fate In Disguise - Poem by PADMINI DUTTA SHARMA
One thing about life we must all agree
Nothing here comes for free
You toil as hard as you possibly can
It takes years to be a true human!
I was walking past the meadows
I heard some footsteps & a shadow
I couldn’t decipher what they whispered
The moment I turned they disappeared.
I had failed that year in my class
Everything had gone wrong that X mas
As I came forward to cut the cake
Pop said I was making a mistake.
I being a girl would not inherit his estate
My brother was the one with a golden fate
The jubilant crowd cheered his name
He was already riding on the powers of fame.
I was always treated like an outsider
Like a formidable foe kept asunder
Tiniest of blunder was blown out of proportion
Our whole house relied more on concoction
The moment my dad had a cerebral attack
He forgot all about money and Nasdaq
His life was seriously at stake
He realized his dilemmas and his mistake.
He admitted he had blundered
His emotions misguided
He allowed himself to be plundered
Sense of guilt filled his soul
He knew he did not play his role.
I sat beside him day and night
Never bothering about my own plight
No one was near except my mother
The beneficiaries chose to be asunder.
His blessings have made me a star today
Fate in disguise has been kind to repay
I have no regrets and no remorse
I am proud to have performed my duties
As a daughter par se!
