RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

Rookie - 15 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)

Single Mother


She lived alone with her
Most precious treasure,
A daughter, left by her
Beloved who changed her
For a woman with
A better face and coquettry.

She worked with her colleagues
Helped by one and everone,
She took her daughter
To school and gardens,
To zoos and amusement parks,
Denying to get married again,
Since her daughter will
Get treatment differently,
From what she wished for.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
