Marriage


Age old saying about marriage,
Sacred bonding and not carriage,
It is not freedom from cage,
Necessarily arising with completion of age,

No one thought of its sanity,
What are marriage and its utility?
Does that stand for population continuity?
Permanent bond and relation in amity,

New relations with two families union,
End of sour relation and exit form oblivion,
Finding perfect match as true companion,
With gala dance and lavish dishes in pavilion,

So long confined within limits, can be perfect,
Enhancing prestige and image with great impact,
Adding to civility with understanding and respect,
Surely it is an arrangement and not a pact,

Lavish spending is not necessarily,
Simple marriage with blessings happily,
Out of reach expenditure will be simply silly,
Not a wise steps but committing folly,

Parent may suffer on account of marriage,
Colossal waste of money can’t manage,
Adding to worry with heavy burden,
Pressure may be high to tackle it sudden,

With over of ceremony no more worry,
Calm all over and nothing to hurry,
Simple way of parting beloved one,
Sharing of joy but pain by none

    Because of awkward grammar and phrasing, I'm not sure I understand this poem. It seems to begin with the basic question as to what is marriage and why we get married. It might simply be to continue our species, to live with the perfect 'Other', to look respectable in the eyes of society. It's not clear whether the author believes any of this, but the author does believe (I think) that marriage can be enjoyed when it's most simple and expenditures are wisely handled, when there is love and respect on both sides.

    Sir, when you have time, please read the following:

    1. Thought
    2. My Final Day
    3. The Mocking Smile
    4. Unwasted

    These are all unrated still. Please have a look at them. Thanks. (Report) Reply

At midnight and at morn?
