Could you not speak, just for a while?
Just for a while, just you and me.
I am your mum, call once a while.
I feel lonely, forlorn infirm.
Culture, swept away now with wind
Or maybe slipped into culprits hands.
Such is the trend in this tainted land,
Hail our sociopolitical, systems unwound.
I grew up in a fertile field
All called me lily of the wild.
My growing days were golden rich,
I grew up bright, without a hitch.
We may seek help from you, in life
Only few may help those in grief.
The rest ignore all cries for help
But all just wait expecting help!
I felt her warmth above the ground
It threw the rime, from ridge of ground.
My soul dormant, yet felt her nigh,
I stirred to break the loose sand high.
Your baby’s future is, in your hands
Teach him habits that make him fit,
To help survive in a bitter world,
And be happy throughout his life.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And free us from burden, too hard.
Dusty gold drew and destroyed men!
And made fool of much mighty men.
Why was Eve made from Adams rib?
Was she to be emotions queen?
Was she to be his passion or pain?
With fairies face and a confused thoughts.
Each child is like a mountain brook,
That flow by nature's own set scheme
Just like the breeze, through the mountain pass
Merge and mix with, the ether mass.
As Eve was sired from Adams rib!
She was nigh close to his sweet heart
She knew all secrets of that heart!
She loved the hugging of his heart.
This world is a Paradise of beauty!
And is so for our eyes can compute
And our mind accepts it as truth!
And assure us that we are right.
The valley is no more the same,
The trees and fields now stand in shame!
Their apparels shed devouring times,
Fair jasmine young, you try to climb
In haste undue, though yet unsure!
It’s good to let your veins and limbs,
To grow more strong, or may rupture.
Each life a candle, in its built
Just some get lit, attain its goal,
Though some remain, lifelong unlit
And both have a body and a soul.
She came no call or knock or ring!
She came to glade at night on wings
And stood near me, so calm nigh nude!
The waves they roar and lash to break
The earth with brutal force to shake,
And force it to lie, below beneath.,
So as to kill its life and wealth.
The mind in whirl, as in a storm
To bridge the gap, now and the past!
With fence we try, demarcate world!
And try defends our meager hold.
Just like the wind, defends unseen!
So our wily will, defends unseen.

You think that by your own merit,
You scaled the worldly seats of height!
If so you fool, your mind is blind,
And is an outcast, from fairyland.
Parents worked hard, to fend and feed,
To help you reach, top seats refined.
You dump them now, for they need help,
For you want to enjoy, your world.
You think that they just did their role,
Why do they fret and feel so sore?
Why should I care, “forget the lore”
My wife, demand a fancy car.
I work too hard to keep lifestyle!
I need to keep status meanwhile
Slighting parents inflict me pain,
I conceal it with a soothing grin.
Beware, decades will fly past you!
You too will turn, grey and white too!
Offspring of you will shine like you,
‘And throw you out, as you did too’.
