A Dancing Puppet! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Why to keep on smiling
When my heart is bleeding.
All my hard work went into drain.
Dancing on others tune went in vain.
Like the monkey who jumped on each beat
While my heart had painful beats.
At last I cried out like thunder
My words blew them out
Yet it left me depressed forever.
A person should never be straightforward
Because they are the ones cut first
This is the lesson I learnt in my life
Which made me dancing puppet
in hands of few selfish ones.

If I knew how to play the game well then
I would have been the winner!

    In this crooked world, to be very straight forward can often invite trouble! We have to be shrewd like serpents! If we are too simple, others will make us dance to their tune! Life teaches us many hard lessons! Great write Geetha! (Report) Reply

    Most of the politicians are dancing puppets at the hands of capitalists who finance them for their personal interests. (Report) Reply

    We've all been through this Geetha being used by someone.
    Sometimes we are open and truthful and this can lead to getting hurt.
    Good poem on being used like a Puppet!
    Thanks for your comment to my poem.
