Treasure Island

Bashyam Narayanan

Keep the chain of human race unbroken

Made in heaven
Are marriages
Is an adage
But this phrasing is slowly assuming
The status of just a saying

A woman and a man
Are declared wife and husband
To stay together and united
So that an institution called family is
Established, maintained and sustained
With the great responsibility of
Begetting children and helping them grow
Into worthy human beings

The prime motive is to
Ensure continuation of the
Genetic order Homo sapiens

Togetherness and union among the couple
Are directly proportional to the
Emotional, social and economical interdependence
Both of them feel and display

Initial display of mutual interdependence
Immediately after marriage
Is enormous, as it is natural love and affection
And sustaining this is necessitated by arrival of kids

With the advent of civilized living
Social contacts and economic dependence
Demonstration of mutual interdependence
Wanes and as of now it is less uncommon
To see couples fall part
As the sacred heaven-designed relation is strained

There is a need for the couples to
Get committed to relations
As it is the only way for
Keeping the chain of human race unbroken

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
