Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. Poems
A Woman Forty Plus Aspires
I must be the centre of attention
And reaffirm my desirability.
I must feel validated as a woman
And re-experience the romance of love.
Let be burnt the ennui of monogamy.
Let come again the sexual excitement
That I went through at my first night.
Need not the man in focus be a prince,
An emperor nor a millionaire.
Let him be the one I want to be with,
In accordance with my safety,
Proximity and convenience.
Just for a ‘love you leave you alliance.’
Yes, I must waste no time to test my worth
And remain faithful with my husband.
See The Dog.
Take a dog for an example
To live a life with the least stress.
It doesn’t count its misfortune
Nor make any plan for future.
It lives from moment to moment
And serves who sustains it.
No regret for the past events
And no fear for the future things,
Man can cut down to an extent
