And
She's treading on still..

As has been so far
Deafly unconcerned
Along a road, in the cab, in the shop
Anywhere
Unbeaten by deafening noise
Unbothered of scolding, mocking, joking, shirking

Others blaring in
searching a piece of sound
Fathoming her ears

Unknowingly that

She the queen
Her dictatorship bejeweled, bedecked
Slamming everybody at her feet
Her best familial way
Despite a deaf, illiterate

Unknowingly about

Her sovereign cognition
Of kitchen and as well of her nation
Despite a deaf, illiterate

Unknowingly that

She the most unconcerned of herself
Devoid of aid any her hearing-loss
Yet can talk on M.S.Subbalakshmi
Despite a deaf, illiterate

Unknowingly that

She the shepherdess of the infernal
Where she's treading on still..
The bold and deaf ninety five
To the inkling sound of silence
Treading on still..

A fine work. Hemingway's message through 'The old man and the sea' is clear - Man can be defeated but never destroyed. The central character of the poem justifies this. Yes. If you see the mental capacity of old generations, it is something incomparable. We have to learn many things from our older generations. Their inner strength was far more than what we could ever imagine. Far from the din of the world, they led a peaceful life, accepting the variety of life without a prejudiced heart. This is what we should try to copy in our life.

she seems oblivous to what is unimportant, and very tuned in to what is
